Another Fisher angle problem

    I've done a search and tried everything I could find related to my problem. I have an Electric Pak Fisher 6.5' on my truck. It goes up and down fine, but doesn't angle. I disconnected the angle cylinders and squeezed out all the fluid thinking it was bad....which it was mostly. Now that I have them full and the resevoir full, it still won't angle. I have the proper 45 degree rotation on the cables. I adjusted the lift valve to see if that would help. I can angle it back and forth by hand when attached or unattached. This makes me think the fluid is not being kept in the cylinders and getting by a valve somewhere. Any ideas on the problem and how I can fix it? I've plowed my driveway with it as is, and just get out to adjust when necessary. That's no fun.

    Thanks in advance fellas.

    No S2 valve on a cable pump partner.

    How did the packings look when you had the cylinders apart?Does the motor run when you angle the controll?
