Angling trouble

    I have recently bought a used Meyer E60 pump w/ poly plow. I just hooked it all up and it seemed to work fine at first but when I angled it all the way to the left, it got stuck & I can't seem to free it up (even by pushing against tree lightly & holding lever). Then I put my older E47 & steel blade back on the truck & the same thing happened. Anyone know why this would be happening? I can't get either one to angle back to the right. Any input & help would be greatly appreciated...supposed to snow tomorrow!

    Could be either the controller (don't know what style you have) or the wire going to the "B" coil (red wire). Either the connection is bad, or the wire between the controller and the connection's at the pump is broken.Check the red wire out at the pump with a test light while holding the control in the angle right position.I think you'll find it has no power in it.

    This is what happened's when runnin' on 3 hrs of sleep.I meant to type "C" coil (green wire) which is for angle right. NOT the "B" coil (red wire)! MY BAD!

    Change your couplers. They can be the source of alot of problems.

    Normally I'd say yes to that too but,since he changed back to his previous pump and blade and the problem remained it's gotta be in the wiring.It was the only thing that wasn't changed.

    He said he changed back to his old E47 and steel blade so if he changed blade's I'd assume the hoses and coupler's were switched with it.

    I did change everything, so B&B had it right. However, the problem was with a coupler. I took it off which caused a big release of pressure & put a new one on. Problem solved. Must be coincedence that same exact thing happened at the same to the other setup. Haven't had a chance to try changing that coupler to see if it provides same solution. Thanks for the help guys!!!
