    i have the e60 with a joystick controller.

    the blade drops slow.. yesterday it wouldnt drop at all so drained the oil pulled the filters and added new oil today. so now it lowers but really slow. rises and angles at normal speed

    also when i hit the joystick up sometimes it will angle left.
    same with when i angle right it will try to angle left

    what can i do to fix these issues.

    and i have been reading about pressure checking. how do i do this and how to adjust. thanks

    any write ups?

    Back off the drop speed screw a 1/2 turn or so and see if it lowers any quicker.

    update: i got the downward movement fix. by adjusting the screw

    now the right and left is still tricky.

    i replaced both my c and b coils and valves.
    -when i hit right it goes left.
    -when i hit up it goes left.
    i have to tap the stick a few times to get it to catch and move

    Hi TDS,

    Mine does the same thing. I suspect it is a sticky valve. Did you replace the vales and coils with OEM products or aftermarket. I have heard that there can be problems with the aftermarket parts. Some one one stated that you get what you pay for. I live with mine because I only have to touch it the second time to get it to swing the other way.

    i did the sam parts. both valves and coils.

    i was reading might be dirty cross over relief valve?

    took mine apart and dont see anything wrong with it

    Left is the default on Meyer pumps.......If there is just power going to the motor, it will go left......Seems to me, that you have a problem in your controler (or somewhere), that power isnt getting to the B and C valves, just to the motor

    Thats a controller or electrical issue as the commands aren't reaching the coils, and when they don't (but the pump runs) they angle left since its the default function when no coils are energized.

    Either your joystick is faulty or the connections on the rear of it need addressed.

    Make sure you have the coils in the right position. My neighbor took his off to clean up his pump and paint it. When he put them back on, they were backwards. B in the C spot and vice versa. Of course he swears he put them back on in the same spot he took them off. His plow did some strange things that way.

    Wouldn't make it turn left though.

    Yes when the joysticks get aged the internal contacts and springs deteriorate and get cruddy thus it won't perform the requested function. Same with the connections on the rear.

    Either a bad ground to the coil or a bad connection to the coil. Since you have already replaced the coils and valves, look at a problem in the wiring and/or controller. Make sure you are getting a good signal to the coil.
