E47 Meyer slow to lift

    I have an E47 on an old truck that I picked up cheap. I have done a lot of work on it and it is most of the way there.

    What it is doing is when I hit the lever to raise the plow the motor runs, but it takes about 10-15 seconds for it to 'grab' and lift the plow. Once it does lift it is strong. It goes side to side just fine and has good power on the angling.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    After you check the fluid level...Check the filters as well.... Wonder if one is clogged up.

    Thanks for your replies you guys!
    The pump & plow were a pretty big mess when I got it. I got the water out of it, the pink fluid, did a ram flush and pump flush, replaced the hose couplings and A coil (broken wire right at the coil), and cleaned out the A valve and crossover. It looks like I have more to do. I will look at the filters, chances are that they need service too. I also learned that the B valve is in charge of raising it, so I will pull that apart as well. Also on the list to check is the top vent plug. I am guessing that it could cause a delayed response if it was plugged.
    Again, thank you for your replies.
