How much fluid do I add?

    I just drained the fluid on my 7'2" LSX unimount plow and read my owners manual to see how much I need to put back in and was kindof confused with the hydraulic ram sizes and then the angling rams. Do I add the 1 3/4 quarts for the angling rams to what I put in for the hydraulic rams. Also how do I measure the hydraulic ram? Or if someone knows how much fluid this plow takes that would also be great. Thanks guys for your help

    Take the vent plug out of the side of the case and fill it until it runs out of there. Put the vent plug and fill cap on and angle the blade left and right a few times. Remove the fill and vent and add until it runs out again and your good to go.
