    Pictures of the plow and mount would help. Also any more information on the plow itself would be good. I know that someone can help here you just have to give the correct information and pictures is a HUGE help! Good luck!

    First, check the hydraulic fluid level. If low - add fluid or (better yet) flush and refill reservoir. Try operating the plow. You may need to bleed the system, but often they will "work" the trapped air out. If it still doesn't angle properly, go online to the brand of plow you have and look up the mainentance manual for it. But my guess is low fluid level letting air into the lines.

    If it's a Myers clean the connections going to your solenoids. Three wires if I recall properly red green and black. Unplug them and plug them back in see if it angles properly. If not check your solenoids.
