    I have a conventional belt driven plow that was working fine until yesterday afternoon when I tried to angle the blade to the left but it would struggle to move, but when I angled to the right there was no problems and then angle to the left and again the blade struggled to move, could the valve body be the problem?

    Could be rubbing have someone work the controls while you look.

    Didn't see any rubbing, I figure it is in the valves.

    Swap the Q/Disc on the angle hoses and see if the problem moves to the other side. If it does, then it's in the valve, if it doesn't its binding in the blade.

    I just went out and put the blade back on the truck to swap the dissconects and before I did anything I angled the blade to the left and it moved with out a problem, then back to the right and then back to the left and the blade moved the way it should, I never did anything to it.:confused:
