  3. so i can move the cylinder just fine when i just touch wires from pump together but once on a switch then it doesnt work right. i bought a new switch for it. i hook it up one way and cylinder will lower blade but then wont lift it.

    I will be going to where i store plows some time tomorrow. I got one whole wiring set up and pump that is not on a truck.

    Could be solenoid wiring is not right. Are the wires to the switch different colors? Or maybe the solenoid is bad or not grounded properly???? check the contacts too.
