    My western ultra mount works but it makes a screaming noise when you lift the plow or angle it. i lave changed fluid and it still does it. It did it most of last season during normal use. It gets better when it warms up, and cleaning the connectors on wires also made it a little better for a while, I was wondering if I should buy a new electric motor, or if anyone has a solution or idea.

    Sounds like a bad sleeve bearing.

    It is replaceable, bearing sleeve replacement kit (PN64596) and motor bearing sleeve repair kit (PN 64589). Under Western service bulletin SP772.
