    My plow did not angle right and I found the solenoid closest to the connectors to not be magnetized under power. I bought a "C" solenoid kit and when I went to install it I found the bad valve had a red wire not green but was in the position I understood the C valve should occupy. The other valve has a green wire. I remove the valve that I think is bad and the dimensions are the same as the C valve I bought but it looks different because it has no screens on it. Are the B & C valves the same? Were older valves wired with different colors? I have been using this plow for the past eight years with the valves in their current position. I'm more than a little confused and hope someone could shed some light on what I am seeing.

    Somewhere along the line someone swapped the B and C coil's around.The B valve and C valve are different but the B and C coil's are the same (exept for the wire colors if course) and they will interchange.The C coil (green wire) should be on the valve thats near the power angle ports.
