    for MEYER.the manual says with lift ram lowered take fill plug out, then take drain plug out. let it drain, then lift the lift ram manually to get the rest of the fluid out of the lift ram cylinder .it should be empty. then take your angle ram hoses and put them together, then manually angle it to the driver side. unhook the hoses and put on extra couplers on each hose. put the driver side in plow fluid. and the passenger side in a empty bucket, then manually angle it. your rams should be empty. to flush or fill, keep the extra couplers on the hoses.then put the hose that is connected to the collapsed ram in fluid and manually angle it , your angle ram should be filled. to fill the pump , put plug in the bottom and fill at the top. lift plow up 2 inches and then angle it side to side till the air is out. then check fluid making sure it is at least a inch from top. now cycle it up and down then check fluid. try to make sure( if possible) to be on a hill facing plow down to get air out. walla your done. hoped this helped.
