    My brother in law helps me plow. This morning when he went out his plow would not lower back down. It is a Meyer sixty. Anything common he can look for? Thanks

    If he pushes down on the stick the Acoil should magnatize. should grab a wrench. if it dose then its either the valve or has a plugged filter or the lift ram is broken or bent.

    A is the little one with black wire. If it dosent turn magnetic you either have a bad connection or a bad coil. If dose have magnatizem if u then pull the valve and the plow drops its the valve. If the plow still stays up its the ram.
