    Hello i'm new here , much to learn .

    My 3 year old Meyer E 60 pump is Sometimes sluggish. Up and side to side. Sometimes it goes right back to its almost too quick and snappy opperating . More times though its sluggish , the motor semingly not full RPMs.
    ONE thing however , IF i jam it all the way Left ,, most times it will go back to normal snappy opp for awhile.
    So far ..........
    changed fluid
    cleaned screens
    checked ALL elec conns , all are 100%
    replaced main HD power solinoid

    my thoughts/further guess-es
    motor brushes , worn or sticking in holders
    stickey pilot ck valve
    stickey b or c solinoid

    Any input greatly app. The plow works ,, but i know there is a gremlin somewhere.

    How much have you used it?
    If it's had over 100 hrs a year I would consider replacing the pumps motor.
    You can get them fairly cheap at a automotive rebuild shop. About $90 trade in vers $150 for new.If you just buy a new one keep the old one for a spare. You have covered all the other bases so it must be the motor. My E47 works great after it gets working a lot and warmed up. You sure it's not working from start to finish?
