Angle Ram Flush

    I went to flush the angle rams on my classic meyers plow today, and I couldn't get them to move. I laid the plow face down on the mold board, but I could not push the arms in either direction. I really want to get this done, but I am not sure what I am doing wrong. This is my first time trying to do this so any advice would help. I had the extra coupler and the container ready to do flush them as I have watched on You Tube and read about but I just couldn't get mine to move. I did put them on the truck and I could angle them using the pump so they aren't locked up, at least not to a point where they won't move at all.

    Thanks in advance for the advice.

    Hook it back up to the truck.
    Raise the plow so it is just off of the ground .
    Swing it all the way to one side.
    remove the hose on the extended ram.
    (Just the hose with no fitting on the ram, going into your catch-can)
    Swing it back the ther way.
    It should be empty now;)
    Reconnect hose.
    Repeate on the other side.

    If you want a tad easier.
    Buy another male and female coupler, install on hoses.
    Both hoses in containers (above the fluid line). And continue as sno said
