    I am trying to figure out why my western ultramount straight blade is have a struggle lifting it self up, just started yesterday morning. things I have done,
    removed canister, cleaned filter, new fluid (looked fine to start with)
    removed #20 cartridge and replaced with new one
    different controller

    COULD THE MOTOR BE POSSIBLY THE PROBLEM, the left and right functions are fast and proper -- the motor seems to operate fine for these two functions.

    any help would be considered and appreciated !

    thanks
    Kindly

    The quill is only for drop speed. Possible that either the motor is bad, or the pump is going out. Is it making any bad noises while going up? Remember that going up takes more hitch in the giddy up to raise it than angle it. The best option would be to put a psi gauge on the up cylinder and see what she's putting out. There is a pump adjustment inside, so you would have to take off the resivor again.

    it isnt making any bad noises when lifting,
    I dont mind having to remove the can again, but first I am going to change out the motor tomorrow with a new one and see, if not I have another (new) pump -- less the cartridges.
    (where would one look for the adjustment you speak of)

    thanks kindly
