    So i hooked the blade up to test everything out and its reversed:dizzy:
    When I hit the right button it goes left, when I hit the left button it goes right. Speed is fine and the raise and drop works great. What's the deal? I did a couple searches and couldn't find anything on a problem like this. Did I cross up some wires? (I know it needs a good cleaning and some paint....working on that as we speak)

    .... but Awwww now that sucks! The quick connects will only go on one way.....so I have to remove them from the hoses and swap the sides.....

    Thanks for the help! I guess I should upgrade from ball type to pin type anyway, I usually order from Northern or Smith bros. Any other suggestions on where to shop for quick connects and hoses?

    I hear you, but I have been nursing a line where the rubber is starting to crack off...I'm worried that when I try to remove the fittings the hose will crack more and really start leaking. I just need to suck it up and buy new hoses. I was hoping to get a little snow money in first but looks like this can't wait.

    Thanks for the help! Glad it wasn't my wiring, and its a simple fix!
