Plow Lift problems

    Greetings,

    Am trying to figure out a problem with my plow...... I have an '84 Ram Charger with a DynaRamic hydro pump. When I try lifting the plow, the lights go dim and the plow won't lift, however you can hear the pump working. The plow will swing side to side with ease.

    Fluid levels are good....connections look good as well. I did try running jumper cables from my personal pick up to the battery of the Ram Charger while it was running, and was able to lift the plow. That no longer works. Now you just hear the pump working, but again no lift.


    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks
