    I've got a western snow plow that we broke an angle cylinder replaced it filled the pump up and nothing moves. drained the pump cleaned the filter filled it up again and still no pressure what could be the problem? could the shaft seal be a problem?

    Ok unimount. When you filled the fluid back up did you fill it till it came out the level hole?
    Is the motor running with the proper function?

    If it is a two post motor make sure your wires are correct. If hooked up backwards the motor will spin backwards.
