    you may want to check the pivot pin to make sure its not bent and also make sure your safety chain is not hanging in the way when angled if you have a safety on yours

    the plow works great except at full right angle it does not want to move until i pull on the blade a little. and it seems like the blade drifts way to much so besides the cross over relief valve what could cause this? should i replace the valve since resetting it didnt stop it from drifting
