    I was curious if anyone has use cross over springs guys are selling on e bay? my blade drifts and i was wondering if this could be the problem. MDII w/E60 pump. I dont think spring has been replaced and plow is 2002 model. I have also seen 1 piece assy. but kinda pricey if all you need is the spring and if I replace with 1 piece unit will I have to adj pressure.Thanks

    If the Blade is Drifting Down,then you NEED to check the O-Ring on the Bottom of the Ram!

    If the blade is drifting down you need to check the A-valve. check the O-rings, and make sure the stem in the valve isn't stuck. The a-valve is the one with the black wire. But since you mentioned springs, Do you mean that the blade is tripping or laying over easily. If so your springs should have adjustments on them that you can tighten them up a little, or just replace them.

    Wait a minute, is the plow drifting or is it not holding the angle ? because the springs I belive your looking at are for the crossover relief valve.

    OK , now we know witch direction to go in. First check the O-rings on the C-valve, that is the celenoid with the green wire. if any of the o-rings look damaged replace them. Then check the orings in the crossover relief valve. If any of those look bad replace them. and if the orings look ok then replace the whole valve. meyers part # 15606. But if you replace the crossover valve you need a pressure gauge to make sure the valve is set correct.
