    cant get meyer system to go right. Here is my question. Took coupler off hose from pump to angle cylinder, had bot hit right switch, fluid shots out. had him go left, same thing. Now i think, though i do not know much about plows, it should push out one direction and suck in in the other direction. Now if i am right is my cross over valve bad? Please help, you experts that are out there are a pleasure to discuss things with. Thank you.

    Take the hose with the coupler on it and hook it to the other cylinder and try moving the blade back and forth to make sure you dont have coupler or cylinder. For some reason, meyers are notorious for going through couplers. If it is a coupler, make sure you get the ball type and not the pin type and replace both sides.

    When you are cycling the fluid like that it is under pressure. You gave the fluid a open hole to shoot out when you took the coupler off. You need to check the B solenoid.
