    I bought a western 7'6 from my brother in law for a back up plow, It worked fine last winter but now it angles fine but will only lift without the weight of the plow on it. It has fresh oil, new suction screen, i have adjusted and readjusted the cables i also adjusted the lift valve. I looked in the book and there is a shuttle for the 3 way valve and i wonder if that plunger or ball is dirty so the oil is running back into the reservoir and not getting full bore to the ram? But looking at the picture i cant see how to get at the shuttle. Can anyone help?
