    Yesterday I was clearing my driveway and lost all hydraulic power. The motor ran and the solenoids were clicking. Took the unit (E-47) in the house and cleaned the filters and was playing with it with another battery and it blew the pump input shaft seal. Today I replaced that and put it back on the truck and now all it wants to do is blow seals. It this unit junk or is their an easy fix? Thanks Andy

    sounds like you may have a blockage somewhere else (in the valve body - debris?) causing backpressure to blow the seal. I would clean the rest of the unit - take it apart completely. I bet there's a blockage in there somewhere. Were the filters dirty?
