Do I need to bleed the system on Meyers E47?

    I just replaced the power angling cylinders and now I can push the blade by hand about 6" either way. What is the correct procedure for bleeding the system? The guy at a local plow repair said to adjust the pressure relief but that doesn't make much sense (at least to me)!

    Should be able to just keep running it left and right and the air will bleed out of the system.

    Head over to the Meyer forum and search "bleed" or "air"...you'll find lots of good reading on it.

    Here's the update, I ran the truck up on ramps and lowered the plow so my cylinder fittings were the high point and blead the system by cracking the fittings at the cylinder and retracting the ram until I had fluid escaping from the fitting, tightened the fitting extended the ram and repeated several times to make sure all the air was out of the cylinder. That seemed to help now what I have is from the plow at center position I can push on the blade and angle it to the left about 3 inches, from center the right side is tight and can't be moved by pushing on the blade. Any ideas?
