    i have a boss power v plow with rapid tach 2 and it operates well in all but the right angle cylinder will not go in out or any thing the motor runs but it don't move i think it might be a bad solenoid but I'm not sure which one does what on the solenoid block if some one has a diagram or any ideas i would appreciate it also where is the cheapest place to buy parts for these??

    For it to not extend or retract, it sounds like an electrical problem...possibly in the switch box..but your on the right track to check the solenoids and valves first. Check the wing in and wing out valve/coil assemblies for magnetism with a wrench or screwdriver to see if they're getting power from the control box and also check the ground wires on the coils
    also..

    Only other thing it could be is the wing cylinder itself...or the passage in the manifold is plugged up.

    Heres a pic of the manifold to show you which valves/coils to check:
