    Hey guys, I bought this plow used, and when we fill up the oil resevoir to where it says it is full on the dipstick, it will blow oil out the top. But when it goes down a little (like a quarter inch above the add line) then it is fine, and doesn't do that anymore. What could be wrong, or is this normal? We were thinking maybe it has the wrong cap on it?

    Thanks for the help guys,

    Brant

    What blade position are you filling it in Brant?

    Has to be in the vee position and of course the lift ram has to be fully collapsed or else it'll be over full.

    If you can't verify it was in the vee position when you last filled it you may not even have a problem...doesn't take much of an overfill before they'll push the excess fluid out the top.

    Gonna be a little tough to purchase a Unimount series mount for an '08 Super duty...because there aren't any. Ultramounts only.
