    Where are you guys getting your meyer or equivalent oil. Local store wants $13.99qt for aftermarket oil. I though it was high personally after reading that you guy's are finding meyer for $7.99qt. Anyone have a source for the oil and flush at a decent price?

    Smith bros plow parts usually has a good price, sometimes they have a special with a cheap pail that is a good size to keep in the top of a salt bucket.

    Well I found non foaming oil with an antifreeze agent for 4.99qt. I still can't find a flush. Nearest place to me is 2 hours one way for a Meyer dealer. Where are you guy's buying a flush?

    A trucking place told me to use rubbing alcohol mixed with hydraulic oil at a ratio of 1:5. One part of alcohol to 5 parts oil. Does that work?
