    i hav a western plow pump on my 60 series chevy dump, it has a 10ft western plow. The issues i was having over this past winter was the plow would angle slow, go down slow, and raise slow, now this pump was all gone over by Stroks Auto, last fall, they said its out of adjustment. Just looking for help, before i trash this pump.
