    Hello everyone....I have a quick question about a lift arm on a 7.5 Straight Blade Uni-Mount Western Plow:

    The seals were leaking last year. I replaced them this year and after the first snow event it is leaking again. The lift arm is in good condition...could I have the seals installed wrong? Is there any procedure on how to install them correctly, and if so, can someone send them to me? I would really appreciate it.

    Well I went to take out the lift arm and to my amazement the large nut was a little loose. So re tightened and will see what happens.. I can"t believe the nut loosened up like that..
