E47 Stops Short when Angling

    I have an TM6.5 with an e47 pump and I noticed when I angle left and let off the switch it glides to a stop as it’s supposed to but when I angle right and let off the switch the entire plow almost stops short.

    The other problem I’ve been having and I haven’t had time to play with the wiring yet because it’s raining is when I go up with the plow it angles left a little each time I hit the switch.

    Any help would be appreciated, Nate

    Nate, on the first question that seems normal for an E-47, I might be wrong. But here's why: when angling left that is the default or open passage so no valve involved just the motor and pump slowing to a stop when you let off. When you angle right you are activating a valve, so when you let off the valve deactivates and stops the flow of fluid immediately. No coasting to a stop when going right.

    On the second question: an idea. On my E-60 I just had a similar problem, they both have the same valve block. Mine was a bad o-ring on the valve, here's a link to that thread. http://www.plowsite.com/showthread.php?t=71838 The bad o-ring was allowing fluid to bypass the valve. You would want to check the A valve since it's going up.

    Hope this helps. Thad

    Thad got both the answers for you and he's correct on both accounts. What your describing is 100% normal, but is more pronounced on the lighter plows such as your TM series.

    Totally correct on the short stopping, but when i replaced all the seals on all of the valves i still seem to have the same angling left when raising problem.

    I ordered a new B valve, ball and spring because i accidentally broke the threads off the top of the valve but since that is the valve that makes its raise I’ll see what happens after i get the valve.

    Thanks again
