    found a damp spot of hydro on the concrete and bottom of the pump and valve cover saterday, was wounder do I have to have the blade on the truck and down to remove the pin for the lift clyd off to get the cover off so I can see if the pump or valve is leaking or can i do it with out it hook up to the truck? looked under the cover at the plug it is not leaking ?

    While you don't HAVE to have the plow on the truck to pull the pin,it does make it easier as when it's on the truck, it will hold the lift tower in place when you remove the pin.

    Thanks I was not thinking about that, that would help alot would'nt it, the place I live I buying on contract so the guy has a lot of s--- in the garage 30x30 And i only have room for the blade and a few smaller things so I thought since there's a heater in there I could tear in to it might wieght in tell it gets a little warmer and do it with it hooked up with the truck..

    Re-cheak the fittings on the hose you replaced.

    You added fluid to top off the reservoir after you blew the hose?

    Then when the plow was stored the head gear was forward allowing the little extra you put in the tank to leak out the filler cap witch is also a vent.
