    Does it say Monarch on the pump? Hyd/electric unit, grey in color? Pics would really help but it sounds like a Western hybrid that was called a Polar.

    The 60018 is a western 7.5 standard blade.

    Do the headlights and lift cylinder stay on the truck or come off the truck with the blade?

    The lights stay on the truck,the cylinder or pump is under the hood and it's a Haldex.I can not get it to go right or left,I do hear noise around the pump but no movement right or left,only up and down.I sent pictures at your e-mail.Thanks Bill:help:

    Yup, thats a Haldex pump! Technical info for those pumps is really hard to find on the net (couldnt be a Monarch).

    So, your going to have to do the process of elimination. Motor does run when you ask for up , left a right?
    Do the hoses coming off the pump for the turn cylinders "Jump" when you hit left or right?

    No hoses move when trying to move left or right.

    On your pump between the black part (which is your fluid tank) and the gold part (which is the motor) there are 2 black coils. In the pic i can only see the one side are there coils on the other side and how many?

    Will have to do some digging to find info on that unit.

    Sounds like a bad coil or valve though. Need to find outwhat valves on the valve body are for angle. If you take the back off the switch box there should be 4 wires going to the angle switch. The raise switch will share 2 of the colors (these are for power in and motor solenoid activation), the other 2 will be to the valves for angle. You should be able to find those 2 colors at the pump and that will tell you what 2 valves are for angle. Get that far and then get back to us.

    After going and replacing all the connectors on the wires for my own peace of mind,the plow still did not move right to left.I went reading around the internet and I tried something that I read and it was put the plow against something solid and then push the switch,Now it's working 100%.Thanks to all that read and replied to my post.Bill ussmileyflag

    That sounds like a stuck valve or bad couplers, might be worth it for the piece of mind to atleast change the couplers. Just dont use the cheap ones from overseas, get them from a good hyd shop.
