    The plow would drift down slowly, i found there was a bad o ring on the bottom of the ram. Very easy job to fix. Troubleshooting guide says to check the a-valve o rings first. Everything was fine on the a-valve, Next is to check the seal cup and o-ring on the ram. And thats where the problem was!! I hope this info can help somebody.:gunsfiring:
  2. Had the same problem

    When it drift down. Does it angle to the Left? If so B valve. I had a bad new B valve. Here is http://www.angelos-supplies.com/Portals/0/Plow leaks down.pdf

    Exactly why I switched to Western/Fisher 15 years ago. Meyers pumps always seeemed to be so finicky. Definately an o-ring/valve issue. I used to carry a space pump with me with quick connects so I could switch in a matter of minutes when I had issues. F%$# that blue fluid.

    NO NO
    Does the snow
    plow drop straight
    When the snow
    plow angles does
    it drop?
    Replace "B"
    check valve.
    Does it now hold?
    Replace "B"
    valve. Does it
    hold now?
    Replace Sump
    Are "A" valve Orings
    in good
    condition? Does
    "A" valve stem
    move freely?
    Replace O-rings
    Replace "A" Valve
    Disassemble unit, inspect Orings,
    Cylinder, Piston
    assembly. Does it hold now?
    Replace Sump

  6. Sound like there may be dirt in the cross over valve or the bad seal on the ram. Could be both.
