Last year (didn't really get to use the new CTA 60" plow) I had some leakage out of the fittings for the angls cylinder only.
I noticed that the front fitting looks like it might be rubbing slightly. I picked up some permatex ptfe paste (as I read you are not to use tape-which someone did before me). I've brushed up on the install instructions but it does not show the fitting orientations crystal clear. If someone has their hitch ready to go (which for some of you seems to be about August), I was wondering if you could snap a pic for me to match my fittings. If anyone has advice/pointers, I'm all ears.

Do you have a picture of yours?
A guy once told me if I needed to use tape something was wrong. However, I use tape.

I will need to double check because I am going from memory (not so good any more), but I think those fittings do not require any sealant. They are a swivel fitting and can be tightened at any convenient angel that will work. If the fitting is tight and is still leaking, then you need a new fitting. As far as position, I would just position so that there is not binding or rubbing of fittings or hoses. I myself try to avoid using sealant on hydraulic fittings that have seals. I will try and remember to check this out for you to confirm.

OK, I just did a quick look on JDParts. And yes, they are O-ring seal fittings. You may just have a bad O-ring.

Yes. O-ring seal fittings. Just rotate the fitting to the correct angle and tighten the lock nut and washer that seal the o-ring into it's counter-bore.

Thanks so much. I will reposition/snug them up and give them a look for further leaking. I think I'm going to go ahead and do the transmission fluid change next week so I don't have to do it in the spring when things get busy. If they continue to leak, I'll pick some up while I am there. I mean they can't be more than .20 a piece right?:laugh::lolol:
