    And so it begins. I have a Fisher EZ V stainless that has one wing that is moving extremely slow both on its own and when moving to the scoop position. When moving to the scoop position the slow side will move faster once the other side reaches full extent. This makes me think it is a valve issue but don`t know how to adjust for more flow.
    The same plow will lift extremely slow when there is any weight at all on the blade as a whole and is almost useless in heavy wet snow for lifting. I have three of these plows and the other two act completely different with loads of power. Any help would be great!!!!!

    Sound like the Plow oil & filters need to be change. After flushing & cleaning all areas where the plow oil goes, like the manifold, Cylinders, Angle/Lift, the pump, the valves screens. Plow oil will not go thur if being block by something. May need to change a part or more

    Good thought. It was serviced at the time of the problem and the repair shop didn't get to it. New fluids, new motor and solenoid. I just redid the fluids when I discovered the problem this week. I didn't remove the valve block or anything.Wouldn't mind a service repair manual for these plows. Can you get those?

    F-150 carrier bushing

    Can anyone tell me if they have the problem of the carrier bushing going out on a 2006 F-150 2wd, this a running truck we do not plow with this truck but the bushing is pressed on the drive shaft and no part store has the replacement so the only place is the dealer, but you have to buy the entire drive shaft and it's $910.00 the is insane! :realmad: :cry:

    Thanks for all the help guys, the part that went out was the rubber carrier bushing that is pressed on the drive shaft right behind the yoke all I can see is to cut off the yoke and try to find the rubber carrier and reweld the yoke on.

    Get a pressure gage on it. What you're describing are classic symptoms of low pump pressure. Several reasons for it, but check to see where it's at first.

    from what I have read so far just the one on the oil pick up. I have yet to start yanking coils and relief valves to hunt for screens.

    Depends on whether its AC or DC driven. What color are the wires?

    I have a purple, two orange, a yellow, and a green.

    No black, white, or red. I'm beginning to think this thing isn't AC nor DC.

    Does Walmart sell the pretty orange filters that fit my plow?
