    I hooked up my plow today for the first time this season. The hydraulics started slow, then came up to normal, then stopped altogether.

    1. Do I need to bleed the air from the system? How do I do that?

    2. If I need to get the pump rebuilt, what is a decent price range for that?

    did you drain last year's fluid, purge the rams, and install new fluid?

    No, I just topped off the fluid. What exactly about not doing that would cause the system to totally fail?

    Also wondering why my post count says 11 when I have posted waaaaay more than that.

    you need to change fluid every year. how old is pump? should probably have it serviced by a pro every 2 yrs., but changing fluid you should be able to do.

    the $99 at angelos supplies only covers the labor and not the seal kit, give me a call if you are willing to drive a hour and save $50 419-351-9475

    Have you checked your A, B & C valvles and their solenoids. My C valve wouldn't make the plow go right. Pulled the sol. off and found the shaft on the C valve was bulging like a pregnet cow. The valve was shot so I replaced it and the sol. Now I', 85.00 poorer. You need to get your self the Meyer E60/60H service manual and learn to do some basic service on your own. Every time I take mine to the mechanic, it cost me a min. of 50.00/ hr labor plus parts.

    Do you keep a Meyer emergency repair kit in your truck? When something goes wrong at 2 AM (a hose or one of the valves mentioned above) you should have a spare. I've learned from some terrible experiences.

    As for your fluid, change it every year, clean the the filters and do all this in August. Hope this helps you out. :)

    TS is going to bring his pump down and we are going to go through it tomorrow and find the issue :waving:

    the A valve on a e-47 requires a 1 1/8" deepwell socket ground down on the outside so it will fit in the well that the valve resides in
