    I put the c valve in today and hooked up the plow to check it out. Got it to turn right now, but it still gets stuck all the way left, have to push it up against something while hitting the switch to get it loose. Also left and right are very slow!E47 always like this? The cylinders are not rusty, what else could it be? plenty of clean fluid.

    The problem is either the pilot check valve, or the crossover relief valve. I'd replace the pilot check piston first. Then move on to the crossover relief.

    The crossover relief is what's under the large acorn nut.

    The pilot check piston is located on top, right next to where the B and C coils are. Remove the hex nut, then the piston. If the piston is scratched or damaged, it needs to be replaced.

    You can barely see the nut, because the angle hose is hiding it in this pic. That's where the piston is. If the piston is clean and in good shape, move on to the crossover relief.

    I just might have to put internet access into my mechanics office, just so he can have access to Chuck.

    Although, that means they would also have access to Dino's xrated snow videos too.....

    Chuck.... you da man....

    I'd get a new one, and use a pick to get the old one out. It can't hurt to replace it.

    The Meyer part # is 15609

    Get the other half of it, which goes in from the bottom side. That's a little kit. Part #15639

    Replace them both, and you should be all set. It will be easier to do with the pump on a bench, not on the truck. Use a wooden pick to try and get the piston out first if ou want. It won't damage it. Look in your wife's manicure kit, I'm thinking the "cuticle pusher" will work, ;)

    Thanks Chuck, got the new piston and kit, cleaned everything up and works great.

    Now i just need a new source for parts! Gonna have to go online next time if the local shops can't do better than this!
