    Hi all so my new 2012 SS V works well but I hate the slow drop feature, can i speed it up any way? The lift was bypassing with little weight so I've dialed that check valve in. thanks bob

    Quill is located behind the back cover, use that to adjust the drop speed. I will see if I can find a pic of it.

    Mine did the same thing, it took about 8 seconds to fully drop to float. I took it back to the dealer

    thanks guys, but now I'm confused. The shop told me that screw was a bypass pressure screw and I should tighten (inward) to help with my plow which won't lift alot of snow in scoop mode. I need to scoop and pile snow high at the end of my parking lot. My old V (2003) lifted huge amounts no problem, this new SS seems very weak. After I turned it inward I think it helped that but I still have slow drop speed. Maybe I can't have both??????
    It would help if we got snow so I could play with this......... bob

    The pump relief should also be back there. I think that is what you are talking about as bypass pressure screw. They are two completely different things.


    EDIT

    Randomly turning in the pressure relief can cause some serious damage to your pump without doing a pressure test.

    Here is better picture showing the back of the valve block. You can see the location of the quill, pump relief, and test port.

    Like I said before, you should test your pressure just to be sure you have not turned the pressure up too far.

    Thanks again, got to find a gauge and check it. I did screw it inward till tight then backed out 2 1/2 then went in 1/4 to boost it up. bob
