    Check the poppet valve to make sure it is moving freely and check inside the chamber to back sure there nothing inside blocking the hole.

    Also check the S2 and S3 valves, just to make sure she is spooling (movement up and down)

    Thanks! Your answer jives with my research. I really appreciate it. Can the coil be bad?

    To do a coil check, do the "magnet" test........Have someone move the controller. Using a screw driver , have the person move the stick to the left, the screw driver should magnetize to the valve stem (were the coil attach to). If the screw driver stick to the coil, then then coil it ok.. If it doesn't then there might be a problem...

    In you case, you plow moves to the left (driver side), so I would say there nothing wrong with the coil...

    Just keep in mind, the poppet valve boss plug can be a pain in the butt to get out..Rust builds up around the threads making it hard to get out, and strip out the allen key slot (if it has one)..Sometimes you can tap the plug itself and it might break the rust loose (not hard because you WILL crack the casing). Everyone has their own ideas on how to get the out.. I had to repair mine, and I use a propane torch to heat around the "boss plug" area (just to warm the area.Not cooking the area), letting it cool, then remove the plug without damaging the o-ring.

    LIKE I said before, everyone does it different..

    #2 valve had a small shaving lodged in one of the ports. It kept the valve from moving freely.

    Look inside the pump housing to make sure the pump is not sucking up any more shavings. U might want to flush the system complete and change the oil to the "blue" hydraulic fluid, and clean the suction filter..

    That not a good sign.........
