    Thank you in advance for any clues as where to start looking for my problem:
    Being new to plows, I recently purchased from the pastor of my church, a 7 year old Meyer 6 1/2 ft e-47 pump to mount on my 91 wrangler to plow my mother-in-laws 200 ft driveway. (tired of the snow blower) So just mounted it last weekend, everything went smooth, plow, lights, mounts, everything seemed to work as it should, so i hit the first snow drift i could find, and to my surprise, whenever i dropped the blade to push the snow, the left side would fall back all the way to the left by itself, i could turn the blade all the way to the right, and it would still find its way back all the way to the left, the surface is flat and level, and whole plow was pushing snow, not just one side, dont want to make waves where i bought it, and unfortunately i am stuck with the job to do every time it snows, and funds are limited. Information is a valuable tool !! Thanks too all who can help

    sounds like crossover relief probs to me. pull up the meyer manual and look it over. not hard to fix; takes some learning to put together.

    Green wire valve swelled. Indication is having to pry the coil all the way off vs just being able to pick it up off.
    Have seen more pilot check valve problems this year than ever before. Broken spring and/or poppet sticking (seat is HAMMERED).
