    I had the sam issues with my old one..All the problem was was a bad electrical connection at the plug and the ground wires on the motor were on the same post they need to be one on the motor and one on the block..Maybe this will help.

    He forgot to plug in the A, B, & C coils. He just did the big black & big red power cables.
    He said he couldn't the wires to plug in to them. took me 15 minutes to locate them & other 30 minutes to fish them out.
    An old E - 60. I am teaching him how to hook up the snowplow. He does a good job mowing and maintance on the mower.

    Tomorrow get the plow out of storage. Got too dark fast to see to put it on. No electric at this storage place.

    1st we put the power unit on then we hooked up the plow We couldn't rise it due to the overload light came on then we try to to angle right the over load light came on. Unhook the plow. Left angle went up did not left plow up. Left the plow in storage. Can't drag it on the state & city highways. Due to it wouldn't go up. Just a 10 foot wide X 4 foot deep storage just big enounght for the power unit & snowplow. Without electric & no tools. There the whole story.

    Why didn't you short chain it? Isn't that why the chain advocates praise that optional procedure so much??? You missed the perfect opportunity. :laughing:

    Let me try to translate

    It does not have the power to lift the blade when angling left.

    Or

    I kind of fixed it.
     
  17. Sound like looks like bad valve or coil not getting a ground or bad coil.

    Yes I did change the Valves due to broken studs. The new Valves came with new coils. Now it just goes Up good and fast on raise. Does left angle also goes slowly goes up on left angle. Does Right angle also goes slowly up on Right angle. It lowers good.
    I think some dirt got in the Meyer E-60 or do not torque valves properly due to the deep well was deep enought. Kept slipping off. So took it to the Meyer snowplow repair shop where they have the right tools. Will report back when. IT IS PAID-IN-FULL SO I CAN PICK IT UP. I CAN NOT CHARGE FOR REPAIR. MUST BE PAID-IN-FULL SO I CAN GET IT BACK!
    We are talking about next Friday not Black friday Pay-day from other place I work at. Good thing I can use there equipment do my customers on way to gas station.
     
  19. I see what you mean about repairs shops want Paid-In-Full. They told me that when a snowplowing company gives out rates when Fuel price are low. Then Fuel price go up almost a $1.00 per gallon. The payment slow down or stop coming in for repairs. Once there snowplowing customers agree to a rate they can not raise it. They try the customer goes to an other company to have them to do snowplowing same price or few bucks higher before the fuel goes up.
