    This may sound silly :dizzy: but make sure the joy stick control rod is screwed all the way in.(the crome rod that comes out of the controller,the handle) I was having trouble with my angle bearly working when I noticed that the rod was almost all the way unscrewed which was causing it to loose travel and not move the cable far enough:eek:
    It now works great

    Well, the angle sure wants to work.The pump is activated when moving stick left to right but it acts like it's working against itself. Seems to be locked up. I moved into heated garage thinking it might be frozen but still no go. I'll check my joy stick Snowpoe.

    Thanks for the help
