While plowing last night had a driver lose all of his fluid on a uni mount, seems like reservoir has TWO drain plugs? allen drain tight, had a "bolt" drain plug that may be stripped, is this correct? Havent dealt with unimount in a while.

If it IS correct, could bolt need o ring?

None of those fittings use o-rings

Usually NPT threads can be saved as they are tapered so try chasing the NPT threads first. I think these are 1/4" NPT threads. The next step up is 3/8" NPT threads which I don't think you want to do just yet.

Yeah, I think it IS indeed stripped. I have another plow laying around, ID rather switch the entire power unit, any "easy" ways to avoid alot of wiring? Where do headlight wires lead to? Would be nice if its plugand play? but I doubt it

Changing the power unit is very simple. All you need to do is remove the hydraulic hoses (mark them), remove the cover for the valves and take a picture of what wires are plugged into where, remove + and - from motor, and then unbolt the power unit from the frame. Reverse steps to install. Super simple.
