    I was just driving home, and my plow starts to drop a little, not unusual for an older plow, so I lift it up, drops back down, the more times I lifted it, it seemed to drop even quicker. I had to pull over and hammer the gas and hook the safety chain to get it home. I don't see any leaks. I did adjust the cables earlier today. I am going to try to fix it tomorrgggow, just curious if anyone has any ideas what might have happened. This is a spare truck that has not been used since last year. I appreciate any help.

    Probably still out of adjustment.

    Engine driven Fisher with cable operated valve? Sounds like your valve body is done.
