    I've slowly been rebuilding my 1995 Diamond plow to try to get it working. When I bought the F350 and plow, nothing was working. I've replaced all the coils (solenoids?) and the plow now goes up and down like new. The problem is it will only angle to the left, no matter if I put the controller to the right or left, it still just goes left. What could it be? I'm stumped! :mechanic::help:

    what a coincidence.....I bought a Snoway Predator plow yesterday, hooked everything up, and everything works great, except that I am having the same problem. If it helps any, when I push the button to turn to the right, my plow raises. Any help or input would be awesome...thanks!

    ok, after hours looking for a solution, I have come to the conclusion that it is probably a spool valve. Is there anyone out there that can point me to a video or step-by-step guide on how to check/replace a spool valve? I am new to hydraulics and really dont even know what a spool valve is, but I'll research it and see if I find anything....

    make sure all the wires are going to the right location, make sure someone wasnt in the screwing with it befor u bought it. check all grounds.make sure u have power to every wire for each funtion if so, check to see if the coils are all working (take them off the coil post and stick a screw driver thru it and hit the each butten and see if the coils becomes magnetic)

    go to Meyer's website and download the manual for your pump, they have a pretty nice flowchart that you should print and put in the truck.

    Also, posting in the Meyer forum will get you better exposure....and likely answers from B&B, that guy knows everything about them
