    Has anyone experienced the problem with the newer Western joystick. I am trying to replace the old T-Handle, but I find that the new joy stick actuates the plow up by pushing the joy stick forward, and the old t-handle raises the plow by pulling back on the handle. I have tried all I can and it just isn't right. If I pull the joy stick back and manually energize the pump it will raise it, but there is not a switch in the joy stick in the pull back position. Looks like I may have to rig it, and have an external switch that I can function. Any ideas or do I have the wrong joy stick. I also did try reversing the valve actuator on the pump it self, which would work except the hole where the cable is attached is of to one side of center, and there is now way the cable can make the bend. **** Everything I Own, Is A Little Bit Broke ****:mad::angry::dizzy:

    The joystick should have a diagram on it, when you push up it goes up. Its opposite of the old t handle.

    That is what I just explained in my post. The Question I have is, Are there different varieties? As near as I can figure, there must be a different pump style that accepts the joystick I have, what I need is a joystick that replicates the action of my old T-handle. All the joysticks I have seen so far, operate the same way as the one I have, which is wrong for my pump. Are there joysticks that raise the plow in the pull back direction? That is what I need, just as the T-Handle operates.:)**** Everything I Own, Is A Little Bit Broke ****

    Further investigation has revealed that pump adjustments, may be wrong.Both the T-handle, and the Joystick advance the cable while in lift mode. Does anyone have the proper adjustment sequence procedure?:salute:**** Everything I Own, Is A Little Bit Broke ****
