    I just moved to a new house and have set my MEC 9000 hydraulic up and got it running. I've noticed I have a little oil leaking on my table and saw that my vent tube is not hooked to the bottom of the cylinder. I guess this came loose when I moved it. Anyway, I can't for the life of me see where that tube hooks to. I know its for blow-by oil to return to the pump but I cant find the nipple or hole its supposed to hook into. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks, Dennis

    If you can't see where the vent hose hooks to chances are you broke off the little fitting. It plugs into the bottom of the cylinder under the red base plate. Only place I've been able to find that little fitting was from Mec themselves. Hope I am wrong with my assumption.
