    Hello all, thought i'd share a tip with you that hopefully saves you time and money in the future.
    I have an 11 year old 8'6 v plow that the right wing would return at a quarter of the speed as the left wing. Long story short I diagnosed that the problem was the valve cartridge connected to the coil for that function.
    The nearest dealer is 45 miles away so I decided to take a closer look at it. After removing valve youll notice screening where the fluid flows through. Mine was all gunked up, cleaned with a pin, nail and some brake fluid and its good as new!

    I thought I'd write this because when I did a search of my problem I cam back with nothing.
    So dont buy new Valve cartridges my friends ! Clean the screen , they'll work like new and you'll save $100.
