    i just bought an old setup to plow my drive. guy said the left right valve is sticking. pump recently rebuilt, all new hoses. c coil is strong, pulls my socket wrench right to it. magnetism good. my problem, stem/threads are peaned over and i can't unscrew nut to take solenoid off to get a valve. what happens if i unscrew it, nut, stem and all? will i be wrecking something inside, or just spinning an o ring????

    sorry, header should say e 47 or 60

    C valve is swollen. It, and the coil, are junk. Wreck the coil to get off valve, remove valve, and replace.

    Crossover relief, or you have mismatched quick connects, or kingpin on a frame is worn out

    cross over relief

    ok, i checked the crossover and found a broken spring. ordered a kit. wanted to check the pilot piston. when i take cap off, the piston freely moves up and down. does that tell me anything??? i hate to sound so dumb but don't know what you mean by king pin. i wondered about the quick connects, cause when i disconnect them and try to hook them together, i can't. thanks for all the help so far

    Yup. You just need a spring and o rings is what it tells you

    if the pilot check piston moves up and down freely and looks clean it should be good. you need to change your couplers, make sure you get pin type as they are much more reliable than ball type. change all four, a bad coupler will not allow the plow to angle.

    I'm kind of having the same problem I have an E-60 pump. I've got magnetism on all the solenoids yet when I hooked it up today, (first time in 6 months) I first tried up, no problem. I then tried to angle right and the plow went left. I tried left and it went left. Clicked right again a few times and did the wiggle back and forth but it is all the way left now. Not to sure what it is. I never disconnect the hoses. I pull the big connector and pull the release pins. It's the EZ mount plus. Any help would be great. thanks

    You're speaking of the quick couplers correct?

    Do you have magnetism on C coil when pressing right? Does the coil slide easily off the C valve? Do you have power at C coil when pressing right?
