    Did you make sure to line up the internal spot and the shaft? Check your filter? Just first thoughts.

    More than likely you didnt get the pump shaft and motor indexed together.

    When i first went out everything worked fine. I went to get fuel and when i got home nothin but noise so i first checked the fluid and it was low. I toped it off properly and nothin. With the truck off cause it's a diesel you can hear the motor spinI but the plow won't do anything it might jitter when you first hit the lever but that's it. First thing i am going to check tomorrow is the filter then the o-ring. I had this motor on for two plows then the truck has sat for around a week and a half.
