Hydraulic flush on Curtis snowplow
Remove the cover of the pump to access fluid reservoir. Remove drain plug with 5/16 allen head wrench. Remove the fill plug with an 11/16 wrench and drain fluid. Put plow in float mode and press all the way down on lift cylinder. Once drained replace drain plug and fill reservoir. Lift plow a few inches off the ground and take cylinder end of the hydraulic hose off of one of the angle pistons. Retract that piston completely and put the hose end back on. Do the same for the opposite side of the plow. Place plow in float again and compress lift cylinder completely. Angle plow left and right a few times while on the ground and fill reservoir completely. Replace pump cover and your done.
