    hi im new to the plowing scene and this year i finally got my first plow shes old lil rusty no holes and been sittin a wile.. like 4 years. the price was right so i figured id try it out see if can make any money. so any way i got it all hooked up found out the motor selenoid was bad replaced that have a leaky line got one to replace it w/ im low on fluid but waiting out rain drops as i speak before i change them n fill her up. the motor kicks on to raise but nothin to angle not a click or anything im workin alone on this cause my wife dont know wat a left handed cresent wrench is so im better off solo and cant run a test light or anything to check power at the front connections any one have any options? thanks ahead!

    That is a little too far to drive just to try some other switches. If it does turn out to be the switch let me know, I will give you a real good deal on them.

    ok wasnt makin good connection at harness now i go to raise and it turns left that leads me to b coil i got a tiny bit of magnetism i dont know what a fresh one feels like so cant compare. do they get weak or just quit? my local plow shop said a-coil could be hung open told me to check it, looked good so i pulled b valve and the dial that moves seemed a lil tighter than a did any other ideas? or just start buyin parts... thanks for any help

    try swapping B and C coils, same thing just different color wire. That should tell you if it is the coil or valve. Also Look at the valve stem, part coil goes over, if it is bulged the valve is shot.

    like i said im new to plows i mixed my coils up i ripped b and c valves apart. but i just switched the wires this is what i got
    power up it angles to passenger side
    angle left or right it angles to driver side
    and now you mention the green coil was rediculos tight to get off and back on

    :confused::confused::confused: "C" coil. If it raises the "B" is working, if it lowers "A" is working if it is going left automatically it is mostly likely "C" valve/coil

    You have to swap coil and wire, this was just to see if your coil was bad. C coil should be the green wire. C coil is also the long of the two, B and C. A coil should be on the back side of the pump base.

    If the coil was real hard to get on and of most likely the valve is toast.

    yes C coil/valve, if the valve was tight you need to relace it the coil might still be good.

    First lets make sure you coils and wires are in the right places. Looking at the front of the pump the coils should be on the right. The big one towards back is the C coil with green wire, The other big one is the B coil with red wire. Small one on the back of the pump is the A coil with black wire. Hook it up like that and lets see what it does.

    But like I said, if the stem on the valve is swollen it is most likely shot.

    Like Basher said:

    To go down A coil is energized

    To go up B coil is energized and motor runs.

    To go right C coil is energized and motor runs.

    To go left motor runs.
