    This a repeat problem for me and was wondering if anybody else was having this problem

    I have a MM1 plow with belt driven pump on a 97 GMC truck. Extremely pleased with the plow and pump, as I have run it since the truck was new with no problems AT ALL other than this issue. The last three filters I have installed have gotten pin hole leaks at the crimp on the filter housing. I am referring to the inline filter on the return line that looks like an inline fuel filter. All of the filters have been bought from a Fisher dealer. I asked the dealer about this problem, and they said they haven't received any other complaints. Up until these three filters, I had no problems and coincedntaly the filters came in a Fisher package with zip ties and hose clamps. The three filters that have given me problems have been S.A.M (Snowplow After Market parts) kits with a filter appearring to be the same and the same zip ties and clamps. I asked the dealer about this and they said the filters are no longer available from Fisher, and are only being produced by SAM. Funny since SAM Headquarters is only a short distance from the dealer making me raise more questions. So let me know what you all think about this matter.
