    After this last snow fall my plow stopped working and there is fluid leaking out by the motor I was hoping that it is just a gasket but looking at things it might be more is this a quick fix or do i need to rebuild it

    There is a gasket there.Remove the motor and change the gasket..
    Gasket #25861

    Check the filter (attach to the pump) to make sure it is not clog..If it is clog use "brake" cleaner to clean it out..Or replace the filter..

    Get were your finger is to see if there is a crack there. Look like one from the picture

    Is the plow working?

    If not explain what happen and what functions stop working
