    So i completely installed it today and when i was maneuvering it left right up down.. it would pore out oil from the seal which connects the oil holder to the motor? just shooting out... it almost looks like when western blasted the bolts on it was over done and looks like theres a space that shouldnt be there..

    Anybody else have this problem? or something i forgot to do?

    also wats so important about the plastic breather oil cap your suppose to replace the metal one for.

    You just diagnosed your own problem right there. It can't breath becuase you don't have the breather cap in place. And if it can't vent- it's gonna push it out somewhere. I'm sure you can guess where that might be. :D

    I have oil coming from the cap

    When I use the plow oil comes out of cap. Is there to much or is there something wrong with it? I had it installed by western dealer. Try not to take it back if it is a small fix.

    Check the fluid level before anything else.

    Breather Cap for Western HTS

    The hydraulic oil is probably squirting out because someone did not remove the reservoir plug an put the breather cap on. With the plug in, the reservoir will build up pressure and blow out the O-Ring...thus the leak. The breather cap has a "duck bill" that allows the pressure to escape out, and not allow anything into the system. You will need to have the reservoir and O-Ring replaced.
