plow wont angle one way

Ihave an older arctic pump that wont angle one way .It ran low on fluid so I fixed the leak and refilled it and now wont turn one way and I can hear the pump running but it just squeals like its all the way out. If I switcht the lines it will turn the other way and not back please help.

Was it angling correctly before you added more fluid? I don't know much about these things but it almost sounds like a valve is bad.

It might be the bearing on the motor..Check all your connections first and ground cables..Good Luck.

Is your pump the M673 out front pump or M683 under the hood pump? Either way check for power than check crossover releif valve.

stuck valve... almost super simple ....or an electrical problem

if you can move ur plow any other dirrection...that means ur pumps is good and working

you said it sounds as if the plow was maxed out in its travel, but doesnt move? i guess what ur saying is that the pump sounds like its trying to push fluid and boaging down.....

Check that valves for electrical connection, and that the coils are working...if they are, id guess that the valve it self is stuck

10 min fix...
