Wideout questions

    My buddy just put his new wideout together. Everything works great except the passenger side wing goes in scoop but slowly retracts back after letting off the button. It doesn't retract all the way back flat, just a short distance. What you think it is? air, bad valve? If he lets off the button just as it scoops, it holds all the way in scoop. If you hold it a second after it scoops it will slowly creep back some. The driver side holds fine.

    The second question is are the wings supposed to go out at the same time or one at a time. When he hits scoop, it usually pushes the pass side out first then the drivers.

    Last question is the little orifices that are supposed to be in the wing connections were not included with the plow. I heard they are not really needed, is this true?

    Thanks for any help!:waving:

    It still has a little air in it. The wing rams can take quite a while to purge until they're working correctly.

    You don't HAVE to run the orifice restrictors. The wings will just be quicker without them
