    So I have been chasing the leaks on my E47 for a couple weeks now. The plow was freezing up so I replaced the fluid and started fixing leaks. So far I have replaced all the hoses and the fittings, I have tightened the ram nuts and checked for pitting on the rams and lift. Where are the common leaks and places water gets in on these pumps?

    Most of the time the couplers on your angle rams will be the place water is drawn into the system i usually replace mine every couple years this includes the swivel coupler at pump,and i have not had any freezing problems since doing this my pump is 22 years old. Hope this helps Don.

    Welcome to Plowsite !

    Just remember loc, if the fluid can get out, water can get in.
