    we just got our Boss RT3 recently..we purchased it used and after the first Plowing job..we noticed we had a Leak...We determined the leak was coming from the Filler elbow..Broke Right off...Part Number HYD04810 and HYD0409...Can these parts be ordered and installed easily..we are new to the Boss Plow and surely dont have a clue about Plows...

    Toughest part is extracting the broken piece from the reservoir but being plastic that isn't even tough. Just takes a little finesses and a screwdriver or sometimes a large easy-out. Worse case scenario you can pull the pump unit from the lift tower and work with it on the bench.

    I had this happen on one of my plows 2 years ago.
    I also found the reason it broke was the pump had came loose. The underside bolts that hold it somehow fell out. While you replace the filler tube make sure the pump is tight with no movement. I believe there is a 2 bolts under and one on the back side to keep it in place.

    I usually find them broken because some mechanic decided it would be a handy place to put his foot for reaching underhood repairs.

    I guess my feet are to big to even think of that but knowing some wrenchs out there I can see that being the case. :dizzy:
