    Wideout angles right when lifting and will not angle left at all. Goes up and
    down no problem, wings work as well.....any help diagnosing would be appreciated!

    Would start by checking fuses on the pump. Then inspect S5 and S6 valves, coils and grounds.

    Checked all fuses...they are good...which valves are S5 and S6? Read a post
    about a poppet valve but can not find location of it? thank you

    I know with my old western straight blade my controller went bad the plow wouldn't do anything but move right. maybe see if you can swap and test a controller you know is good to make sure that is out of the question

    no problem, i had 3 western controllers go bad last year. after the first one i was glad i started checking em before taking them to the shop and paying them to find out thats all it was.
