    I had an older e47 rebuilt because it stuck on the full angle left. The repair shop said the crossover relief have was bad. I then had the pump rebuilt and placed on a new style mount which comes off the truck in the summer. The problem is that the angle is stuck again and I am unable to disconnect the angle hoses to relieve the pressure. I will be taking back to the shop but I need to get the plow off. Any suggestion.....Anyone else with this problem?

    By the way this was the first time that I used the plow since the rebuild and I was only plowing my driveway and didn't hit anything

    Not to be a smart a$$, put did you check the fluid level, my old E60 would lock to the left or right when it was low on hyd oil.

    You will have to crack a line open to disconnect the couplers, then replace the couplers and try again,

    take a soft hammer and tap the ring on the coupler down and it will pop right off.

    I did check the fluid level first thing. I put a call into the place that rebuilt the pump. I guess if they have no ideas I will try to unscrew the fitting down my the cylinder ram on the plow itself

    Called the shop that rebuilt the plow this summer and they had me unhook the black wire and place the green wire into the black fitting and had me hit the angle switch. The plow moved. They said that the switch isn't getting enough voltage and the switch is bad. I am getting a new switch today and hopefully it will fix the problem. He said that is a common problem of the switches going bad. I hope so.
