    I changed my fluid (drained each cylinder by taking hoses off and moving blade in each direction) and topped the fluid off after moving blade in each direction. Is there a certain way to bleed the air out? The pistons have almost 2 inches movement. Could they be shot? They don't leak.

    Get the front of the cylinder down lower than the port in the back then angle back and forth

    I hung the plow over an embankment so it was lower than the truck and moved it back and forth. Great now.
