    hello, i have e-47 pump that blows fluid out vent cap when you let the plow down. fluid level is correct& filters are clean. all i did was change fluid in pump, old fluid did not look to bad. has anyone run into this problem before ? any thoughts on what might cause that to happen. thanks , matt

    don't drain it. just let it bleed! Yes you overfillled it . It will leave a couple of streaks in the snow but it will level off and you will be fine

    When you fill it you have to force the ram all the way to the bottom before you fill it. Also i dont fill all the way to the top, i try and keep it 3/4 inch from the top...Rob

    Make sure the little hole in the vent is clear if not , it will shoot fluid out.
