    I can't my cam. batt. is dead and i can't find the charger . The plow sill goes up and down and angles and the down pressure still works but the light bar is not close to the front of the truck and it leans downward untill you use down pressure .

    The light bar leans downwards till you hit down pressure.HMMM something is not right that is not normal. I would definately get a camera and get a picture up here. So we can see whatcha got going on. My light bar doesn't go back more than a quarter of a inch when I hit DP.

    Is this a new or used plow? If it is used check the bushings in the lift linkage and make sure that they are not worn out or gone. Pix would definately give us a better idea to help you out.

    Try adjusting the light bar. With the plow on the truck loosen the four bolts that hold the lower pivots where the attachment pins are. lift the blade slightly off the ground and push the light tower where you want it. then tighten the bolts.

    Let us know if it helped.:waving:
