    I am having a problem when I try to raise the plow it just goes to the left. I looked it up and everything says replace the B valve. I put in a brand new one and it still does it. I got a new coil for it as well and still does it. Check to see if the coil is getting power and has power. The switch is good. I m running out of ideas can someone help me PLEASE. Thanks

    When my plow would start to freeze it would do the same thing and then just stop working. I would change out the fluid and see if it is milky. If it is I would replace it and find the leak.

    It was clear. You can pull on the lift rod it just pulls right up like there is no pressure.

    I had the same problem. replaced B valve, and coil. Still went left. Checked A valve, and it had stuck in the lower position from when I last lowered the plow. Replaced A valve, and was back in business. All the A does is lower. Not sure how it fixed the problem, maybe B&B will chime in, and explain. It something for you to check out. Good luck with it!!

    Thanks thats going to be fun! It took me forever to get the B one off. Might be a rookie question but what is the difference in the valves they look the same. I am saying this with out every taking the A valve off. I will check it out and get back to you guys.

    Is your new B valve a Meyer product or aftermarket? The aftermarkets have been known to be junk right out of the box. Before you check elsewhere you may want to rethink the B if it's not a Meyer!

    B valve= lift
    C " = right angle
    A " = lower
    no valves operating, motor running=left angle

    The A valve is the small one on the back of the unit. Be careful with the nut that holds the coil on, they break real easily. Apply a little heat(nut only, keep flame from coil), and it should come right off. You'll need an inch and one eighth deep well socket to remove the A valve.
