    Ok, how do you guys have your valve control wired? The instructions say to put a black/orange wire on each valve and the blue, green, and yellow but there are two tabs on each valve. Do the black/orange wires go closer to the truck or the blade? :help:

    I have the blade side together and red-to-go. Took just about 3 hours. Just the wiring set up on the vave that has my head spining.

    Pics to follow, hopefully will have time to do the rest tomorrow or Monday.

    The black/orange are grounds,put one on each coil,read the back side of the plastic cover for the location of the other 3.

    Arc Burn - I did read the cover, and did find out which wire goes to which valve, but do the colored wires go on the tab closest to the pump or closest to the truck? Each valve has two tabs, one for the black/orange ground wire, and one for a colored wire.

    Thanks.

    Now i gotcha ya!,Doesn't matter which way you hook the ground and the colored wire(top or bottom)so long as the colored wires are on the correct valve.

    Don, you were to easy on him, i usually give them some line that you have to alternate between coils and it depends on which direction you spend most of your time plowing as to where you start with the ground on the inside.

    Try that next time some guy is standing at the counter when he asks that question.

    dons right though, it doesnt matter.
