    Last season I started having a turning problem. After plowing foe 15-20 minutes the plow would stop turning left, it would try but not move. If I parked the truck and came back a half hour later it would work again, (it didn't matter how cold it was outside) I rebuilt the pump this summer adjusted the cables and everything seemed to work fine, ( I did notice the 4 way valve returns kind of slowly but I figured it was because of the new O ring) Well now after plowing for 15 minutes or so the plow starts to move slowly in both directions. again if I park the truck for a little while and come out it works fine again. I did notice while adjusting everything in the shop the ram tries to go up while turning so I am going to adjust the lift valve out a little, but I don't think this is the problem. Pleasse help I can't afford to take it to a plow company and pay $100 an hour to get it fixed
