    I rebuilt it cause last year it wouldn't angle and lift would slowly leak down. i replaced A, B and C valve and coils. it angles left when when toggled up, clicks when toggled left and toggled right works. i am know 5 days into working on it counting rebuild and changing axle on truck, but getting frustrated. All this snow and I'm stuck in the shop.

    keep fresh and proper oil in it . if you noticed they tend to freeze up . thats why the new ones come encaged with plastic like Boss and a few others .
    you got to admit it , they are very easy to diagnose and work on .
    Good luck , happy new year !!!:mechanic:

    Theres No business , Like Snow business !!!:mechanic:

    ussmileyflag...sounds like red wire is where green goes red wire b coil raises plow... black wire a coil lowers plow ... green wire c coil angels plow...b valve is close to front of pump c is by back could put on wrong and have pluged in wrong switch wire and see if it changes i have seen it before ...could also be bad b coil or stuck b valve it all points to b valve or coil

    Willing to bet its one of two things-either coil wiring is mixed up as mentioned or a bad lift toggle switch-had it happen two years ago when I owned a Meyer-now we are all Fisher thankfully.

    Ok so B coil not working with lift toggle, does anyone have a diagram of which wire goes on which post on switches? i stuck a screw driver on the side of a coil to feel, is there a better way to check coil?
