Should be a fill and level plugs on side or top of unit or resivor. What kind of unit do you have? Does it move at all?

92 Mariner The drain plug did break the small end in pump. Is that why it wont go up and down but make noise. It worked when I put it away. Very new to this.

Can you see any leakage? The noise you hear is most likely to be caused by "air" in system. You need to get air out of there. Fill reservoir with proper type of fluid. If their is a bleeding process posted on unit follow this. I know some only require filling reservoir and running unit up and down until full travel is achieved. Good Luck.

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
