    Hello I'm having issues with my plow and not sure what to do or where to go for help? I have an 8' Western Convent. Plow on a 1988 Chevy Pick-up. When I raise the plow I have to help it up. Once it is up it will stay for a little while but once we start moving the blade starts to drop. I have checked the fluid and check valve. Also I can turn the blade to the left but it will not go right without assistance. I checked a local shop and they do not want to help. Any suggestion?
