    I have a e-47 meyers that will raise and lower but wont go right only left if I disconnect the right ram and center it it turns left no matter what way I try. I have tested for magnet on all three coils and have gotten it. I removed the quick connects and got fluid out of the right port/hose going to the ram but not the left when I ran the controls. I disassembled the crossover valve and clean it ,seemed to move correctly. Is there a way to check the C coil/valve manually? I ran DC voltage to it and heard it click or would it be something else besides the coil? thanks

    You can test the C valve by first removing it, and then reinstall the coil back onto the valve and then grounding the coil/valve assembly with a jumper wire, and then applying power to the green wire with another jumper... if you watch in the end of the valve you should be able to see the spool move when you power it....it doesn't move much but you can see it.

    I tried that I stuck a small screwdriver in the end and feel it move but not sure if it moves up and down. What else could be the problem besides that?

    So you already did the test like I mentioned? You visually saw the spool move with the valve out of the pump and 12V applied to the coil?

    It may still not work when it's activated by the magnetism of the coil... that why I test them electrically, out of the pump with the coil on...and watch them.
