    After about 25hours straight of plowing i noticed my plow struggling to do anything. luckily it was my last lot and my last few pushes so i made due. I had my partner hit the controller a couple of time and noticed the plug valve block (pilot check piston nut) was blowing hydraulic fluid into the air . then as i looked around i noticed my entire pump, hoop and hood of my truck was covered in this. It was something that had occured on the last lot because the rest of the night i got out of the truck several times and never noticed it. I know theyre is a o ring inside of the plug and im assuming that it needs to be replaced which im going to to do today but is their any reason it would blow the o ring other than being old? Just want to make sure their is not something else going on before i change out a o ring and try using it again.

    If the plug has been removed recently, I can see the O - ring getting damaged, that not being noticed, and being reinstalled and failing . If not, that's a weird one.
