    e47-- Plow works great, but will not stay in the up position. Have new A valve and coil in place that didn't fix it. Any other ideas. Thankyou

    Packing on the ram would be my second go to fix. Open it up and look as the packings and O rings.

    I just had that issue with my V it was the A valve. It was just slow lead down. I had to short chain driving accross town.

    Good luck

    hotrod..... there are only a few reasons for leak down... the first would be bad A-valve which you already checked, then it could be worn packing cup. If not that, could be the cylinder base o-ring, or the o-ring that sits on the stem of the lift ram under the piston. Finally, if all those don't fix you up, you have a cracked sump base. P.M. if you have any questions .. Good Luck

    Fourtrax-- your a very smart man. Replaced all 3 items and and that did the fix. I suggest to all dont put the ram sleve o-ring on the sleve to install---set o-ring in the bottom of the housing then install sleve w/ram and top cap all together (gently) do not over tighten top cap--dont forget to grease the o-ring when installing. Thank you all for your time and efort

    Nice, you should now get many many years out of that E47,, just change fluid every year and clean the filters, you'll be good. A properly maintained E47 is bullet proof.
