NEED HELP trouble shooting Fenner/Sno-way won't power angle right

    I'm in a jam with my Snoway. It has the Fenner pump with power left, right, and up, but gravity down.

    I just took this plow off in working condition from one truck, then cleaned and painted it for reinstall on another. When I put it on the second truck, the plow works well up and down, and it turns left, but won't go back right. When I push the switch right the plow also goes up?????

    I didn't change any of the wiring from one truck to the other. The control unplugged, and the plow unplugged as well. All I had to rewire was the hot and grounds. It was very simple, and I really don't think anything is wired wrong. I didn't touch any of the switch wiring.

    So moving forward I think its a valve/solenoid problem? I tried swapping the R.S and L.S solenoid from side to side hoping the problem would follow. It would not. Still no right angle.

    When I painted the plow I flipped it upside down and painted the underside with the power unit still on it. Could I have created a problem with the hydraulics doing this??

    I'm lost and REALLY appreciate any advice ASAP..

    Thanks a TON in advance,

    using a test light see if the coil for right is getting power. if no, figure out why. if yes, you have a sticky valve more than likely.
