    Make sure you lift ram is pushed all the ways down. Also coat the chrome part of the angle cylinders with never seizes grease this way you wont get rust and pits on you pistons.

    Very good advice. I'll add; remove the top of motor ( on westerns anyway) and shoot some W-D or equivelant in to drive out any moisture. I've had the shaft rust up and tear up the bushings.

    Not sure what plow your referring too but the advice you gave is wrong for myers plows. From the E-47 and E-60 manuals it states to fully extend the chromed lift rod and coating it with chassis lube. Full extension of the rod fills the cylinder with hydrolic fluid.

    Just wanted to pass along the proper advice.
