    I am new to this site and have some questions . I just got a 1998 GMC with a ( 20) MM fisher plow. The plow is 7.5 with an Insta-Act system When I angled the plow it took forever to move side to side. After some research I decided that it may have the wrong fluid in it. Fisher oil is blue or clear and mine was red. I replaced the oil with Fisher oil. I believe I had air in the angle pistons before and think I still do. How do I get it out? Also the plow doest lift up every time .sometimes it works good and other times it goes some then stops and goes . It may be the filter or the pump I guess. Is this something a backyard mechanic can do?
    Also any hints on putting this thing on and taking it off would be a help.
    Thank you.
