    The last time I plowed it was acting funny so i checked the fluid & it blew out of the fill hole with air.Then I made sure it was full with ram all the way down & started working the plow again when all the sudden smoke started blowing out of the electric motor were the stud goes in for power cable,I mean like a gizer:angry: So I get out to check & that stud is loose now & motor does not work. I pull the motor off & it is full of oil.

    Did the seal blow causing this or was the breather plugged causing pressure which made the seal blow .
    By the way this was one of the small like 4" motors that draw less amp's

    Is the breather hole on the electric motor . I think freezing rain plugged it:waving:
