    i have a western straight blade probably mid 90s worked fine all year and then all the sudden no matter which way you push the joystick it wants to go right. now it is on the ground in the down position and all the way to the right. cant get it to move it just makes noise. i had a local guy tell me it was probably a cylonoid (sorry if that is spelled wrong). need to know how to test those or wondering if you have any other ideas. thanks for your help

    Had the same issue with my unimount. Turned out to be a bad solenoid cartridge valve. If you look at the pic on page 8 of the attachment below and locate the solenoid cartridge valves (kinda lower right of the pic) you'll see there's three of them. The one that was bad on mine was the longest one.
