    Hi all,

    newbie here. I inherited an old T5 or 6 Electrolift pump and meyer plow. Wasn't coming down as it should so it took the valve out and cleaned out some debris, drained and refilled it, now I can't get it to raise the cylinder. :realmad: I'm sure it just needs to be bled out but not sure what plug to crack open. There is no legible markings or model #'s but looking at another site I determined it was a T5 or T6. From the sounds of things it's dang near and antique.

    Thanks for any ideas or help.

    PS....can't seem to find any service manuals anywhere either.

    Sorry I can't seem to get the photos on here. I'll keep trying. I sure appreciate the info. I messed around with it long enough to figure it out and get it going. Then plowed out my driveway. Came in and saw your response and checked out the PDF's. Mine is the T-5. Thanks again. I really appreciate it.

    Sorry, I couldn't get the other photo to upload. Just said it failed, didn't say why. Tried it several times.

    Thanks again,
