    Test Light A Must

    Well I don't know where to find a wire diagram but I have an idea.

    a: Check for power at coil packs (3)?
    b: If each pack has voltage try to figure out the one for up down.
    c: swich other two.
    d: If no power at coil pack try at toggle swich
    e: No power from swich replace
    f: check for magnetic charge from packs when voltage is applied.
    g:are you getting any closer?

    Keep in mind I am not sure on what this pump really looks like. I've worked on arctic and meyers plus fisher in the past and they all use the same general wiring principals. Good luck in yur quest. If you still can't get it to work try giving a little more info one the pump ect.

    rick54 artiic wiring and pump problems

    Hi! guys - Found ploblems with artic pump unit.
    Pays to keep trying.As i said was rebuilt last two years.
    Just kept triying left to right angles and up and down.
    Started working on its own . I think water got into pump somehow,
    Weather warmed up a bit.Fluid in pump was milky white(dextron 111).
    Questin its an old pump 70's does not have any kind of air breather.
    Could that of contributed to moisture problem?
    I've flushed fluid out.I'm going to try another kind of fluid is that a good ideal or bad one.
    Ive got extra fluid that i use in my backhoe.

    thanks rick54:waving:

    Hey Rick, sorry been away for a while. Send me an e-mail to theconsoli3@hotmail.com and I will send you the info. I am currently having the same problems. Plow will go up and down. No side to side. I can manually push plow side to side no problem manually.
