    start of the winter we picked up a ex city truck when it was droped off all the plow hydraulics worked. when it came time for the first storm the hydraulics didnt work i narrowed it down to a weak pump. i replaced the pump / flushed the system but now still the wing and front plow barely move they will only move slowly when you rev the engine to the sky,

    im starting to think the lines are freezing what is the best way to drain and flush the system
