    I have a 1995 western uni mount poly pro. In the morning it will go up about 3-4 times or angle a few more then slow then stop. I put a new motor, pump, solenoid on the truck fender, drained all oil took solenoids out and blew them out cleaned still same issues. I am out of ideas- any help Is greatly appreciated

    Check your battery connection's grounds especially if all are good put a pressure gauge the presure specs should be around 1500 psi don't quote me on the spec just a starting point

    Does the motor stop? Or does the plow stop moving but motor still runs? What did the filter look like when you replaced the pump?

    wouldn't lift or angle, sounds like battery dead can't hear motor run. everything slows then when I lift or angle it just clicks

    And jumper positive and negative directly to plow motor did nothing? If let sit it will start to work again? Sounds like resistance/heat problem. Motor getting hot and not working or solenoid can do the same thing. But if you jumped power to motor with no improvement I would not think it was solenoid. What type of fluid are you using?

    13.6 when running/ 11.2 when not. Thank you for support! It was the brass adapter that goes in positive side of battery stripped and loose. We put a steel one in and fixed.
