I have a very old E-47 Meyers, My system does not leak but somehow water is getting into the pump, I went to Angelos (parts) site and looked at the pic, can anyone tell me if the top seals are available without buying the top plate? or where else i might find where the water is getting in?? thanks in advance!!

Moisture In System

I agree you can get just the top seal by its self. Moisture can also get in the system thru a poorly sealed vent and filler plug or even from any small pits in the piston rods. Don't rule out condensation, these things do absorb moisture thru the cases and cylinders as the pump and fluid gets warm and come in contact with the snow. John

Thanks guys!! I do have some pitting in the lefty side ram but when I drained & refilled just the pump after the last snow it worked fine. I will try the seal first, are there any tricks to changing it I should know?? ..HN

PS: HONEST, but my problems started (C-valve) when I switched to Meyers juice I had always (20 years same plow) used ATF.

You also need to drain and flush the angle cylinders. They can get condensation inside and the oil that you put in the pump will get contaminated. :) ;) :) ED
