    Anyone have a link on how to replace them? On my ultra I have a slight leak on the pass side ram seal. The ram is not pitted or rusted up or bent. So it shoud just be a seal I hope. Its leaking from the front packing nut area.

    thanks

    Is the gland nut tight? Try to tighten it first, if the rod is not damaged the seals should be good.

    ram seal leak....

    Im doing the same to mine, the kit is less than $10.00 and the ram comes out when the nut is removed. Cheep insurance for a snowy winter!

    Let me know how it turns out. I might just swap them out as well to have the pc of mind.

    ram seals...

    just finished reassembling this am and should know in a few days when I hook the plow up. I had to finesse the packing rings in a bit but the gland nut seated them. Im adding a new relay tomorrow.
