    I hooked the plow up Sunday to move it..It gos up & down just fine but will not angle either way.. I can hear the pump run,I even pushed up against a stump to force it nothing...I do remember tightening the ram packing nuts a bit last year to prevent some leaking (weeping),,Could that be my problem that over summer the expanded.. ???? I did loosen the passenger side but can't get the drivers side to move,(pipe wrench) (but that I will work on ).(sprayed with PB blaster) My problem is the angling.. Any thoughts ??? I also have installed Timbrens the front end It did drop more then I expected (1- 1 1/2 ) I probably need to crank the T-Bars a bit... But plow problem is the first thing I need to fix... Any help would be great.... Thanks ! ! ! ! Rich....

    Might sound dumb but make sure it's plugged in ALL the way. I can't believe your truck is squatting that much with timbrens 1.5"? Mine only sank 1" without timbrens or touching the bars with 9' scoops.
