    Hello new to the site. I just baught a used 7 1/2 foot hiniker straigth blade plow. When I lift the blade it drops down right away. It also will not turn either way. When I test the wire going to the front valve coil there is constant power going to it, if I take off the wire it will raise and stay up but no turn. I put wire back on and plow drops. I can hook up my older 8 foot and it works fine. Could the 7 1/2 be wired diffrent. Any help would be great.

    It sounds like the wiring. Check the wiring diagrams for both and compare
