    My frist EZ-V is in it's 4th season, and because I've already put more hours on it this year then last I thought I would change the fluid mid-season. I always use Fisher fluid, and change it every season. My plow seemed to be slower this year, and it was blowing fluid out of the vent pipe, so I pulled the reservoir off the hydro unit.
    Frist a return line had come off it's tube, the reason for the blow-by.
    The filter screen was almost pluged by a grey sludge, cleaned it and replaced the fluid; A NEW PLOW.
    So if you have an EZ-V and haven't already, check the filter screens on yours.
    Also there is a bar magnet in the bottom of the reservoir, it had done it's job and needed to be cleaned.
