    I have a Myers E60 plow pump which I am having trouble with the power angle on the C valve. I checked the coil by putting a screw driver against it when activated and it is magnetic strong. Would this be a good check that the coil is good? the pomp locks itself up by over pressure in the lines. So what other problem could this be? the valve? I have replaced the quick connects twice. new fluid was put into it at the end of the last season. It has all new lines on it. Could it be the power angle cylinder? It only has the problem turning right.

    However you didn't state what the problem actually is. It doesn't angle at all? It won't angle a certain direction? Or it gets stuck in a certain direction? Need more info to be helpful.

    Sounds more like a controller issue if the motor wont run when the right angle function is commanded. Which controller do you have? Touch pad? Single lever Slik Stik? Or dual toggles?

    Likely a loose connection on the rear of the angle switch or the switch itself is faulty. Wiggle the connections on the rear a little to see if it helps. If not then it's time for a fresh switch.

    The switch for up and down work fine and it works when you turn to the left. only the right doesnt work.
