    I've done a search and can't seem to find anything. And, I don;t recall seeing it in the manual on Western's site. Exactly, how do you flush?

    Thank you much,

    the only way

    the only way i have done it ,take the motor off ,if the drain plug on the bottom in inaccessible ,use a suction pump pull the oil out ,clean the filter use break clean on the housing with the pump removed ,put the pump back bolt the motor on .jack the blade up to get the edge off the floor ,take the hoses loose ,coupler's off ,put the end's in a drain pan grab the blade and push it one way ,then the other to push the oil out of the cylinders ,fill the pump with kerosene and cycle it a couple of time's,drain it out ,flush it with plow oil to get the kerosene out ,and refill with clean plow oil .labor intensive but it work's .
