    Hello folks.. I'll get right to the point. My Western plow worked fine last winter. It has set all summer. Hooked it up yesterday and the problem I am having is, Won't turn left or right. When I move control lever to left plow raises. goes up down fine. I've checked everything and haven't replaced anything. The 9-pin truck side harness should be replace and that is the next move I'll make. I read somewhere here that the truck side 9-pin harness has nothing to do with the plows up, down, left or right movements. Is this true.

    Well it would help if you stated what model western, and type it is.

    I once had a friend ask me this same question over the phone... when I was done plowing I drove 20 miles to his place and found he had hooked his side ram hoses to each other instead to the pump and motor...

    We all need to know what we are working with to help here cheif.

    There are tons of different western plows and all of them are different in the way that they operate and are controlled.

    Give us a chance to help and clue us in on what were working with.
