Fluid Change, Now Plow Wont Move : /

Hello Everyone!
I just changed my fluid on the plow.
I read to change it every year, and I also changed it because
I broke the angle cylinder Elbow and had to replace the angle cylinder.
I changed the fluid and now the plow wont angle left right or up or down.
I can hear the motor spinning and its clicking but no movement.
Any suggestions?
Thanks Phil

Is the breather working? Try to lift it or anything with the fill plug out of the plow

When you say you changed the fluid did you just drain and refill or did you remove the resevoir. If you didn't remove the resevoir I'll bet the intake screen is clogged or as mentioned fell off.
