    i have a minute mount pump rigged onto my diamond setup. decided to drain, clean and refill the hydraulics. all went well, very clean inside, until i went to refill. for some reason there's no fluid level plug. all of fishers pic's/instructions on there website show a plug on the side of the reservoir. how in the heck am i suppose to know how much oil to put in it?

    When the rams are filled, you push the lift cylinder down, and fill it to the bottom of the threads of the fill plug.

    Work all functions of the plow, put it in float mode, push the lift cylinder down, and check level.
