    I just wanted to share a couple of things I did to my E47 today.
    I had a small leak around the top wiper seal, and a slower than normal reaction time on the plow. I took it apart this morning and after searching 150 pages of Napa online, I was able to come up with a seal that fits quite well. I'm not sure if it's the correct one or not but I figured I would throw it out there in case someone needed one to get by until a suitable replacement arrived. (Napa part number NOS11123), the specs on this are as close as I could tell a good fit. Luckily for me I had a spare green O-ring for under the top cap , the one I took out was flat on one side.

    The second thing I noticed was the electrical connections on the pump were already starting to corrode, I just put this on my truck about 3-4 weeks back and I was very careful in making sure that all the studs and bases were good and clean. I cleaned them again today and after I reassembled them I sprayed them with PERMATEX battery terminal protector, it's a spray on application. http://www.permatex.com/products/au...tenance/Permatex_Battery_Protector_Sealer.htm

    All works well now, no leaks and quick acting plow!
    Hopefully this might help others avoid some down time.
