    Before you flame me I have done the research and still cant figure it out.
    I have a e-47 and it wont go either way Right or Left. (lifts up and down fine)
    Here is what Ive done....
    1. Rebuilt pump and all 3 cylinders
    2. Pulled out C solenoid everything looks good
    3. Pulled and cleaned filters
    4. Replaced quick connectors
    5. Replaced wiring harness and switches
    6. All connections and grounds good
    7. Entire system flushed and new fliud
    Ive been chasing this problem for 3 years, I can move cylinders back and forth by hand.
    I am getting power to the solenoid and it is magnetized. Pump runs when you move switch.
    Please help there has to be something Im missing
    Thanks in advance

    It looks like you covered all of the bases . I just finished with a friends myer unit and we found a valve that was replaced last season was bad . Try to find someone with a working unit that will let you swap valves for a few minutes.

    Missing or damaged pilot piston, spring or ball. Or a blown or mis-assembled crossover.

    It may be your crossover relief valve. I have the same exact problem and was told on here that it is a very good chance that my crossover relief valve is broken. I am not at all an expert at these things, but that is just what I got when I posted on here
