    Hello, forgive me if this isnt the right place. I just signed up to this forum.

    I have a Sno-Way Predator snow plow on a 92 chevy 2500HD(small for the truck, I know) and its a bit slow going up. The plow is stamped 99 so its quite old already. It has 2 giant batteries in it which are 2 years old so I dont think its that. What im wondering is how do you check the fluid level and or change the fluid. On top of the pump theres a cap, under it is the fluid but theres no dipstick or level sight anywhere. Any ideas? Thanks.

    A couple.

    First there is no drain you need to pull the reservoir or use a vacuum pump.

    good idea to drain the unit pull the reservoir and clean/change the filter. Check the pump unit itself for jelled fluids.

    The 99 would be a part number. Snoway uses the designation 991 as the beginning of a lot of part numbers.

    Three pin mount? Fenner or monarch pump? Yellow shoe box controller?

    Look on the Aframe and see if there is a number starting 25D or 25G on a metal plate normally passenger's side.

    answer those questions Email me at the address in my sig and I'll send you links to your manuals
