    I noticed today when I moved the plow, when going from a vee to a scoop the passenger side wing is much slower getting to the scoop position.
    I searched and did not come up with much....I thought this was just discussed.
    Couldn't find anything in the owners manual or mechanics guide.
    I was thinking debris in the coil that controls the PS wing function???:confused:

    I'd say it's normal. All of our Western V's have one wing faster than the other.

    Fluid flow to the driver side wing has the priority circuit over the passenger side wing in the pump manifold. It's completely normal.

    My MVP does the same. Has since I got it when it was 2 yrs old. I assumed it was due to valving in the pump. Still works great 8 years later.
