    So i bought an E-47 pump that had one hose (the one on the pump) and the quick connect(on the pump). So i went out to buy a new hose for the other side. I tried to use my plow and nothing happens besides the pump runs. SO tonight I looked at them and I have different couplers then my hoses. (one is the pin type, the other is the ball type) This is like this on both sides. Is this why my plow won't angle?? thanks

    I would say the answer is yes. If your not decompressing the center of your coupler, then no fluid is going to the cylinders.

    Not good to mix different coupler styles. Need to run all pin or all ball, not both or else you run into this exact issue.

    They make several different type Q-couplers ...

    You need to match them up or buy in pairs...

    I went to TSC and got everything to match. Haven't put them on yet so I will let you know once I get everything hooked up

    So I have all my couplers correct now, but still no go. Looks like its a cross over relief valve for me.
