    After the storm yesterday in NY, plow worked well most of it. Snow was heavy! Now when plowing the blade moves either left or right on its own with the weight of the snow, doesn't stay locked on center or wherever. I am assuming the valve is not closing and allowing the fluid to be pushed back into the resevior causing the plow to angle on its own. Am I looking at a bad valve or new magnets for the valve?

    Check your cross port relief they are under the allen plugs near the hoses on the manifold.Take the plug out there will be a ball and spring check the seat for the ball lengthen the spring for more pressure.

    Got one of the plugs out with an allen. No ball or spring. This is an older 3000, manifold is green in color. Going to check the left/right valve next.
