    When it drops with the plow on, is it very slow? I had my drop travel adjusted to tight and I couldn't push it down by hand. I am new at this, maybe some of the veterans will pitch in........

    Crap in the quill (drop adjustment) bent ram. hard to check the ram with-out dis-assembling the pump.

    Don't overlook the A valve filter either. It's located behind the hex plug next to the drop speed screw plug.

    In this case I'd pull the A valve and see if it then lowers easily by hand (have a drain pan and plenty of shop towels ready). If it does, then you know it's an A valve issue. If it doesn't then it's a plugged filter, bent ram, dragging packing cup or worn guide ring. Those take further diagnosis.
