    Just mounted a cable operated plow onto my 91 F350. So when it was time to try everything out I discovered a leak. It is in the housing where the up down cable goes in. There is a machined port on the left side of the lever. This is where it was coming out when you lower the plow. I see there is a set screw to the right of the lever, but there are no threads in the left port. So what do I do??? I looked at another one of those pumps and that hole is cast shut. So do I have an orphan. Looking for any advice would be great.:realmad:
