    I am in the need of some advice. I am buying a western plow that is on an older model gms 2500. Its a really good deal with the truck but the plow just goes side to side and down. We un hooked the chain and the cylinder will only then go up. Anyone have any idea what this could be? So basiccly the plow will only go up when there is no weight on it. Other than that everything is all good. Could it be the pump? Any advice or info will help Thanks:salute:
