I have an older western setup and the plow wont lift. When I move the T handle up you hear the motor running and the truck will squat like its about to raise the blade up but it wont. I adjusted the check valve and no luck. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks, Kevin

Fluid,cable adjustment or pump pressure relief valve,any one of them will get ya.

Have you also checked the filter screen in the pump. That got me once in the middle of a storm.,

The blade will angle left and right but wont go up. If the blade isnt hooked up it will go up no problem. The fluid is full, how do you adjust the cables and where is the filter located. Thanks, Kevin

print out the Mechanic's guide, read it and then put it in your glove box.

I got it to work today. The cable was not adjusted right, works great now. Thanks for everybodys help, Kevin.
