    I have a Western Unimount plow on a Ford F250 and the other night while plowing it stopped angling to the left. It woud only go from straight, to angle right.When the blade was angled to the right, you could go left and it would get back to the straight position and then totally stop. Almost like something was stuck in the A-frame and wouldn't let it go any further. The pump sounded like it wanted to keep going, but wouldn't. Well, a little while later it stopped angling all together. It goes up and down just fine but won't angle.I changed both hoses and was going to add fluid but it appears to be full even after the hose change? I didn't lose hardly any fluid in the hose change, and that seems a little odd. Any ideas where to go from here???

    Your not going to lose much fluid in changing hose as there's no pressure in them when the blade is straight. Sounds like a bad ground or there's a bad valve . One of the valves may be getting stuck and not releasing the fluid to push it to angle.
