    Yup I had a Meyers that actually would not go down at all at one point - and it was the V plow that weighed like 800#.

    There is a little filter in there somewhere, it could be right on the "down" valve. I can't remember exactly. It can clog up. Also VERY important to change your fluid regularly. Another thing that would happen to mine is that in cold weather (like -30) the fluid would thicken and begin to ice up - preventing it from flowing through the filter. Of course this was likely due to moisture build up in the fluid due to lack of regular changing. Also make sure that you use the proper Meyers fluid. Very important.

    So ya, you can adjust your drop time by cleaning the filter :) Hope that helps.
