    MM1 motor is running but plow won't raise or angle. Does this mean valve body is gone? Or is there something else wrong? Any help would be great. Thanks Mike

    It could be frozen. Try putting a big light under the motor/pump unit.

    Pulling it into heated garage now. I thought it may have been that but didn't think it has been that cold. I'll let you know. Thanks

    Why not try the blue Fisher stuff? I run it in both my plows and it works well. Make sure you give the system a good flush out, change the filter and clean the resevoir good.
