Got Fluid leaking out of the top the unit by the lift arm.
Any ideas what to look at first?

When you have leakage on a Meyer power unit around the lift cylinder it is caused by the cylinder cup on the "bottom" of the plunger getting weak or torn. The seal on the top of the unit where you see the the leakage is just to keep dirt and water from entering into the cylinder bore and to wipe the cylinder clean. Or you may have a seal on the top of the resavoir cover plate that is not sealing to the cylinder liner. Either way if you get yourself a master overhaul kit you can reseal the whole unit or just that section, the dirrections that come with the kit are easy to follow.
