    Did you hook your dads plow up to your truck or did you just use his truck?

    Did you pull any of the cartridges (valves) to see if they were clogged? Checked their connections to make sure they weren't loose?

    The pick-up tube may have come off. Drain the fluid, drop the can. The new filters come with a keeper to eliminate the problem.

    i had already checked the pick up tube. i checked the cartradges and they were fine so i got to looking at the pump and think i found it one of the two gears in the pump was broke into three peices
