    I got a old western plow with the hydraulic mounted on the truck with the ram so it goes up and down, if you get what im saying. I need to change the oil. Anyone know how, I dont wanna get air in the lines, and if I do i need to know how to bleed it? if anyone can post step by step instructions that would be awesome. thanks

    remove motor. suck out oil with a hand pump.make sure lift cyl is all the way down. remove hoses from angle rams. if quick couplers are used, insert a used or new coupler end into the hose. jack up plow with a jack and move blade left and right 3 or 4 times. this empty's the angle cyls.fill pump housing with 2 qts oil. install motor. RUN PLOW LEFT AND RIGHT SEVERAL TIMES.then go for up. plow will bleed itself w/ normal use.
