    I just plowed my first storm and all worked great till the last job when the blade started to go up slower and slower till it would only go up a little. It did and does go side to side , but slower than it use to. It has no pully on it , just a pump head and resovour that wires to a selnoid on the wheel well of my 1976 F250 . I also have two alternators, one delco and a gmc. it looks like the GMC Alternator is wired to the plow pump. All I hear is The Click from the selanoid when I try to lift the blade. Its this an electrical issue. I did top off with the blue Hydro antfreeze fluid after tranny fluid was used 1st . It still moves the pistons side too side. I will try changing all the fluid , but wonder if it's just not getting enough power to pump the plow up. It will go up alittle, but it's not making the same noise it use too . Anyone have any inside info., Thanks ussmileyflag:help::help:
