    Ok. Have had issues with my cable controlled pump not working.

    Rebuilt the motor
    Flushed the pump
    Refilled with fresh fluid

    Then I had side to side but no Up and down

    Tried to loosen packing nut on lift cylinder. broke the head of the nut clean off, leaving the threads still in the housing.

    I had an old cable pump sitting in my garage so I decided to swap my guts into the other housing. Now I got it working UP DOWN LEFT RIGHT.

    Only problem is the valving in the older pump is backwards from my original pump for the lift and lower. by that i mean the joystick normally goes forward to raise the plow and backward to lower it. Now when i put the joystick forward, the pump runs and the blade goes down. When i pull the joystick backwards the plow will go up if i run the pump.

    I was going to swap valves, but I dont know if that will work
