    Well I posted this video in my thread of my truck but thought it might help some people in this section of plowsite. Started having problems with my plow slowing down then making a terrible noise. Here are the videos that I made of me trying to fix my plow.

    First video is of me draining the fluid and cleaning the filter.

    Next video the noise the plow is making.

    Next is the new pump install.

    Then new angle cylinders and hoses

    And the final video. Everything working great and final thoughts

    Thanks for posting these; I recently installed an older Unimount and was noticing slow lift and heavy draw, so I followed your pump install video and flushed it. The pickup screen was completely blocked by a clear looking "snot" like stuff? Cleaned everything up, installed fresh fluid, including angle cyl's & now I have twice the speed I had before.
