    My ih dump has central hydraulics

    the plow won't raise or angle. When you try to angle and raise the fluid comes out of the cap through the breather on the reservoir tank. Any thoughts?????????

    same exact thing happened on mine the other day. I had moisture in the system, I changed my oil and filter and put a water seperator filter on it. Mine works good now.

    Return line

    Had this happen a couple weeks ago with a spreader. Try cracking the lines and see if air come out. Check fluid levels and see if water is freezing in one of the cylinders. If it dead heads it will make the pump lug down and a high pitch squeal. If the fluid will not cycle it will over flow the tank because of the return line and the pressure relief port. Hope this helps.
