    Did you replace the bushing when you did the seal?? ( Yes ... Yes .. for thoses that know how to stack snow...I know ... it has nothing to do with stacking snow).. but it can make a motor act up...

    yes i did the bushing the plow just did not want to lift up with all the snow in front of it will driving forward was not sure if this is a sign that the motor was starting to go or the snow was just to heavy and was putting the hydro into a bypass cause it may have been building to much pressure from not being able to lift the plow hope this makes sense to you

    yes I understand... The relief valve may need to be adjusted... it would really have nothing to do with the motor though... ummmm but todays Snow was extremely heavy today.. kinda like cement... I had a break down that I have never seen before.. ever and I have repaired thousand of plows.. all due to the wet heavy snow and many years of abuse...

    I would love to adjust the quill but it is frozen so I would think that the pressure relief is frozen also
