    I have a Curtis mounted on a Chevy 2500 HD with a 6" lift. Plow worked great until this past storm. First the plow would not stay at the angle I set it for, the weight of the snow would push it all the way angled. I checked the fluid level, (fine). I read in other posts about a crossover adjustment but cant find detailed instructions on how to set it. The plow is 3 years old always stored indoors and only done a few driveways, like brand new. The other issue I had was the solenoid burnt out. The plow all togther stopped working and when I looked at the solenoid it was overheated on the plow terminal side. Looked like it was over amping. I replaced it with a solenoid from Napa and working now. Please help before Fridays storm. Thanks:mechanic:

    I melted a solenoid because the connection had started to come loose, it generated alot of heat and melted. When that happened the plow got very sloppy until the solenoid finally quit. Once I replaced it everything was okay again.Can you test it pushing against a snowpile now that your first problems fixed?
