    Make Sure Valve Is Opening Properly & Hydrolic Cylinder Is Not Rusted Or Scored

    First, there is an adjustment cap on the front of the pump, right above the filter. Stick an allen in there and turn it counter clockwise.

    Even if that fixes your problem, I'd check all your valves anyway. Take them out and clean them real good.

    Be sure to remove and clean the filters too_One of the filters is in the passage way between the lift ram and the A valve. If it gets clogged with trash it will restrict the fluid as it's trying to leave the lift ram.

    Is there an adjustment on it?

    I know our two fisher mm1 with the instact both have a drop speed adjustment on the valve body. but I haven't seen meyer plows since the one we put new on a 85 chev (still plow with it) but thats an under the hood pump,

    On the front of the base there are 2 11/16 plugs the upper one is the drop speed adjustment and the lower one is the filter the A valve is the one under the coil with the black wire
