Meyer Drive Pro Drifts Left While Raising

    New Meyer Drive Pro on a 2013 Toyota Tacoma. E58H pump. When I raise the plow it drifts left. It stays in place while plowing. It's done it since new. Based on some searching it seems like it could be the crossover valve but I didn’t see any posts that say if there’s an adjustment or not. There’s nothing in the manuals that discuss an adjustment. Any ideas?

    Thanks, Geno

    Sounds like B valve not shifting all the way.

    I bought the plow on line and had a local satellite shop of a larger Meyer dealer install the electrics. I won't let him work on the truck again. I'll look around for another local dealer but I don't think there are any.

    kimber750: I found a manual. Here's a couple pics. Are you referring to the "C" valve? If it didn't close all the way when not energized I can see why the plow would drift.

    Thanks, Geno

    No, C goes right. Left is default, meaning if no valves are energized the plow will go left. If B valve does not shift all the way some fluid will go to lift and some to left. Bad o-rings on B valve could do this also.

    kimber750: Got it, that makes perfect sense.

    Thank you very much.
