    My buddy just picked up a truck with a Weatern Unimount plow. It works fine but was wondering what should be done as a full service on it. Whats the best fluid to use in it? I know what I do and use on my Fisher MM2 but this is the older style pump.

    change fluid in pump /angling rams/ change filter in pump check for grease fittings although i dont know if alot them have them anymore . and check hoses for cracks and check all bolts make sure there tight .

    and i always use western factory original fluid i dont trust anything else.

    How do you get to the filter? Haven't looked at it yet.

    Pull the motor off........2 5/8 head bolts. With no fluid you'll see the screen. It's a barrel shaped screen on the front side of the pump.

    New screen and cork gasket are only a few bucks
