    this is my first year ever owning a plow. and i have all the parts now, and am ready to put it all together. i bought a rebuilt pump from storks auto and new cylinders. what should the level be at in the pump and what is the rule of thumb to check the fluid level.

    With the lift ram fully collapsed you want the fluid level to be 1"- 1 1/2" from the top. A wire tie makes a handy dipstick for checking purposes.

    Lift ram in the same position (fully collapsed) and the fluid level should just be to the bottom of the threads.
