    I would start by checking the seals on the ram.
     
  3. Does the motor run when you try to lift it?
    If the motor runs but won't lift, you may be low on fluid.
    If the motor is running, is it laboring like it's trying to lift??
    Need more details on whats not happening.

    If this problem just started all of a sudden then it's probably your "A" valve stuck open. The pump can't build pressure in the lift ram with it stuck open.You can pull the valve out and try cleaning it and push in on the end of it to see if it move's.If it won't move,then it's stuck in the open position.

    Your C valve is for angle, If it doesn't angle I would replace that and also check your fluid level. Click on the Meyer logo at the top of the page and it will help you out step by step.

    If the A valve didn't fix the lift problem, you need to get a pressure gauge on the pump and check the pump pressure. An E47 should have 1650 psi at full lift or angle. Did you check the pressure relief valve in the back of the pump to see if it might have come loose or is out of adjustment? Where is your ground cable connected at on the pump?
