    usually its the pump,suck the fluid out of the reservoir,if it is black at the bottom it is a dead giveaway.the motor grounds at the contact point where it attaches to the pump block,this becomes corroded and the motor finds ground at the pump gears and housing arcing them away.remove the reservoir and pump check the gear shaft where goes through the housing,it will be egged. the wings move fine because they require less pressure.you will find the motor usually pulls around 160amps to lift,with a worn pump it wont pull so much.

    Well if it only lifts slow with the wings extended, it sounds like its sucking air. Pickup tubes maybe fell off the pump. This would be the only explanation. Pull the tank and take a look.

    disregard my advice tubby,i misread your statement,i missed yhe fact that it only lifts slow with wings out but works fine wings in,mark witcher is right,it probably turned the suction screen up or something like that.sorry about that.
