    Greetings fellow snow pushers,
    It is that time of year again the time when I start lubing up stiff and rusted
    equipment that has not moved since the end of last season.

    I have a quick question about the seals on the 1.5" lift cylinder of my archaic
    all hydraulic plow system. The last two years the plow as been inching down
    while in transport and I decided to do the deed and install new seals.

    The problem is that the new seal set seems to have a couple more seals than
    the old pack. :confused:

    I was wondering if the kits are universal and if I'm just supposed
    to use the ones that match mine. If someone knows or can possibly point me to
    a site that has a picture of the pack I would be grateful.

    Might you have a hydro shop near by that might could help you ?

    Just my shop and I'm the sole employee.
    I just thought someone here may have done a similar job and would
    have an answer.

    Use the ones that match. Was oil escaping at the seal? If not, you've got another leak.
