E47 Delay when angled right

    My e47 was rebuilt last year and I just installed 2 new angle rams. When I angle plow right there is a 1 sec delay. When I angle left no problem. The plow still works fine but I dont remember it ever having a delay. It almost seem like the angle ram is waiting for pressure to build and then it moves. Any ideas?

    Could be some air left in the system. Also possible that C valve is sticking a bit. Left will always seem to engage faster since that is default on the E47.

    +1 on air since your were disconnected and this didn't exist before that. Wouldn't hurt to pull the the c-valve coil (green wire) and see if it is swollen. If the coil comes off hard this is good evidence.

    you probbaly have air in the power angle rams. you need to bleed them, especially since you just installed two brand new ones.

    x2 on Kimber's idea. The E-47 will angle left any time the motor is engaged unless a valve is actuated to divert the flow elsewhere. You may notice that with the blade angled fully to the right, and you raise and lower the blade several times, sometimes you can angle back to the right and it will move a little bit because it has actually angled to the left slightly each time you engage the motor because a valve may be a little slow to divert the flow.

    I'd suggest checking the C-coil and valve as one of those is most likely the culprit.
