    i have a meyers e-47 that i have had out in the shop for a few years figured i would play with it today. the motor was stuck, but i was able to get it apart and working again.

    my problembs are, that i didn't pay attention about the coils they look identical.
    and when i took the nut off one of the valves it twisted the threads off with it!

    so i ahve to replace one of the valves, witch one is (A) and witch one is (B)
    from what i gather from the valves on ebay they are labled A and B?

    The A block is the black wire, B block is red wire, C block is green wire. B/C are the same size coils.

    Coils etc

    Yeah, A is in back, black wire, controls DROPPING the plow. B is in front, Red and controls LIFT. C is on top also behind B, controls Left/Right.

    Simple stuff: Fluid 1 1/2" below top, clean filters, clean fluid, good seals. If you cannot determine if a valve is working, take a wire and fix it to your battery + and then touch the wire. You should hear a distinct CLICK. If not, it could be stuck or the coil (the electric part that makes the inside valve go up, opening the valve) could be bad.

    To isolate a valve, take a KNOWN good solenoid and swap it (B or C are the same size so you can do this easily) and electrify and see what you get. If no click, bad valve.

    To isolate a solenoid, take a KNOWN good valve an swap out solenoids. If click, old solenoid bad.

    My situation was that I could manually turn my pump tang in the base and I'd hear leaking-turns out the coupler to the hose going to plow was bad...hence no pressure could build.

    I got my unit from a free truck, turned out the pump had a lot of grime in it. BUT, the first time I tore it down, it didn't...so, it must have been in the lines. I did bleed them out but not enough I guess...lesson learned.
