    I failed to grease the exposed shafts of the angle rams when I put the plow up for the summer. :( I hit everything else with Fluid Film, but somehow missed the angle rams. Everything else looks just like it did in April, but on the left ram there is a fairly noticeable rusted pit that's tearing up the packing seal and causing a leak. Not much of a leak, but enough to soil a rag after cycling the blade left and right a few times. The right side doesn't have a pit, but it does have a bit of rusty oil left behind after cycling. Should I just run it and keep an eye on the fluid level, or quit being a cheapskate and buy new rams?
