    Just got a 88 f250 w/a Meyers 7 1/2 plow. Put the plow on other day and it only would go to the left even when switching to the right? Up and down works fine. Now it's stuck all the way left. It's got an e47 pump. I have never wired one of these so don't know what to check. Any help?Thanks

    I am pretty sure its a bad valve assembly. To angle the blade to the left, all the pump has to do is move fluid, there is no valve. However to move the blade to the right, there is a valve that must open. It probably isn't your wiring just a bad valve.

    there are actually three but your only concerned with the green wire one or c valve make sure the valve has current you can touch the top of it with a small screw driver when someone is working the angle switch and it will be magnetized if it has power i would usually replacr the whole valve i have found that if they sit they will kind of freeze up i believe you can rebuild them but i would choose replacement
    if the plow raises when you try to right angle it will be the b valve or the switch it self the switches are inexpensive valves are not cheap

    To Give a little more help- 2 coils on top. Front "B" coil is for raise w/ red wire. Behind that is "c" coil for angle right (when energized) w/ green wire. The coil in rear (smaller than the other two) is the "A" coil for lower w/black wire. If you have magnatism to the top of coil when energized, you have established power to the coil. Coil is good and valve is bad. Remove coil and replace valve. It should take you 10 minutes to change. Let us know if you any more problems. Good luck. #1 PT.

    I know, that is why I dont own any meyer power packs, but we do run fisher head frames with meyer blades. Except of course for the v plows, which we desperatly need more of.
