Meyer won't angle

I pulled all equipment out of the shop today to go through it for the upcomming snow. Going through everything, I have one meyers 7' that will not angle. I removed the lines from the rams, and figured I could at least move it my hand. Nope, I got out the tractor (small JD4300) and pushed on the a-frame, still nothing. Am I due for new rams, or does anybody have any ideas?

This is a backup, so I can get away with it for a while. Any help greatly appriciated.

Remove the rams and see if it moves. If not, then try the tractor again, it's rusted. Once loose, replace the king bolt that holds the sector to the A frame.

If it moves with the rams removed without the tractor, the rams (or one of them) is rusted inside. Rams are cheap enough from Northern, so get a pair.

Thanks Chuck

I pulled off both rams this morning. They are locked up very tight. The only way I could get either one of them to move was to set them up in a press. In the end, they ended up in the dumpster. The Northern you mention, is the Northern tools? Thanks for your reply.

By the way, I had 4" at my house this morning. Nothing in town, but it is comming!
