    hey guys, new to this forum and noticed all kinds of great info, just wanted to say hi to everyone... i have an old western cable driven plow i just bought... flushed out the system with new atf and everything but the plow has a terrrible time raiseing when in a warm shop for to long. if sitting out in the cold it works great, angles great but in the warm shop it just angles. what could this be? i just put a new solinoid and motor on it

    Hey I have a cable plow too. I noticed that when outside it works better or (faster). I figured that it must be something in the valves. You know like expansion and contraction. It is odd though.

    Sounds like the viscosity of the warm atf in your system makes the atf kinda thin and maybe your pump is getting a little worn.
