    Ok guys I put my new wings on and now my plow won't raise all the way ? It's a 7 1/2 uni mount on a chevy. The fluid level is good and the plow was working good. Any ideas ? Thanks Denny

    Take the wings off and see if it will raise all the way, if it does then you know it's either your pump or motor taking a dump.

    Could it lift before when you had some snow on it? I would check the connections first, make sure everything is good and clean.

    With out the wings it will raise all the way. It's kinda slow but it does go up all the way. I will test things today after work and see what i come up with.
