    Ok guys,I'm new to plowing this is my 1st season doing it.So far i've replaced the C valve and a line due to the pump not going to the right.Now my new problem is that when i lift the plow up it starts to fall down immeditaly.I put new fluid in it and still nothing.So i took the plow off and ran the pump to the up position,and it stays up,i lock it in the down position and try to push down on it and it won't budge,can someone please help me,i'm going crazy..lol.Thanks guys.

    First check your A valve [Black wire] see if the o rings ok if not replace it. If so, ground it out on the - post, touch black wire to + post see if it moves freely in, out if not replace it. If it stills not working you need to disasemble it replace all your o-rings. if that doesn't work you need to replace the base. But if it is angling to the left while its dropping check the B valve [red wire] it could have bad o-rings. Good luck

    ok,the plow goes left and right just fine,no problems there.It just won't stay up.I'll start off by doing what markf said then i'll go from there.The pump is only one year old and when i had everything put on the truck the pump was gone through and had all new o rings put in it just to be on the safe side.So i guess well see what happens.What if i have a leak on one of my hoses?Will that make this happen?Just a thought.Thanks

    I dont think we are talkin about the same seal. Theres a seal at the bottom of the lifting ram, its an internal part and you cant see it without taking the top of the tank off. Basicly when you lift the plow theres pressure on the bottom of this seal, and since this is prob failing its leaking off your pressure and the blade is dropping. It shouldnt be too much of a prob to fix...Rob

    Your Welcome!
    Change your fluid in it a lot. that will help keep metal, ice out of your seals.
