    the minute mount 2s are different from the 1's in that they have the new vent. i plow 2 hours from my house where i go to school and bring it to and from in the back of my truck, makes it easier on the ride. but this is my first year with a MM2 and i noticed it has a vent that leaked all the hydrolic fluid out when i brought it up here because i lay it over. is there something i can do that will keep it from all leaking out when i bring it back home? anything to put on the vent or something?

    Plug the breather hole with a pipe plug. Stop by the local hardware store, pick up a pipe plug and replace the breather with it for the trip. Just don't forget to re-install the breather before you use it again.

    Should be 3/8 pipe thread. A little teflon tape will keep it from weeping without worrying about threading it in too tight and cracking the housing.
