    My Western Unimount Is Giving Me Some Problems. Every Once In A While It Works Fine But Now It Doesn't Work. When I Go To Raise It, It Makes A High Pitch Squeeling Noise And Doesn't Go Anywhere And When I Go To Angle It Left It Goes To The Right. With These Problems The Motor Runs So I Don't Think It Is Electrical. If Anyone Can Help I Would Appreciate It. Thanks A Bunch

    You need to check the lift solenoid and spool for proper operation as the squeak is cause by the pump running against a closed spool valve and by passing through the relief valve.
