    sound's like the ram cup packing is worn out (re build) rusted lift cylinder,pitted ram ect . have you tried switching the couplers side to side if it reverses the problem sounds like a bad coupler

    could also be the bottom oring where in inner cylinder tube sits on. For the plow going left when you hit right: check for magnetism on the green wire (C valve). If you have mag. check the valve and clean it. Then if that seems good. check the crossover relief valve. Which could seize up. PM if you anymore help.:help:

    Yep, totally normal. The fluid is being returned to the reservoir as it's leaking out of the ram (either from the leaking A valve or ram O-ring like the others mentioned) and it will displace the air inside the reservoir as it does. They actually do it everytime the lift cylinder is lowered...
