    Mine was leaking a bit but it just needed to be tightened up. Did you try that?

    nope, i bought a new ram.
    i kept them old one for a spare. i figured i could tighten it, but how long is it going to last?
    would i just be prolonging the inevitable?

    i didn't want to get stuck somewhere with a dead plow. i hate working on things in the cold

    Same Problem

    Just Hooked Up My Curtis Same Leak Out of main seal i have not try to tighten it. How ever im wondering as i use the plow and warm the hydraulics the seal might swell slowing the leak.

    New Ram

    Just bought the new Main Ram. Is it just a straight forward swap or is there a proper way to bleed the air out of new piston, I was thinking of trying to manually fill it through the hole for the hose before i attached it. If anyone has any ideas post them
