Hi I'm Wayne, I will try to help you with this,
sounds like it's traveling too far and locking the piston, I believe a stop broke off /missing
down at the bottom, where you have that 1/2 circle, which the blade follows, should be a stop
let me know
Hi Wayne, It doesn't have to travel to the end to malfunction. Starting at center, it will travel right, but not left. I think it's the 4 way valve. Can you tell me how to adjust it ?
OK, I'm not sure on that, I have a trouble shooting web page, see if it helps you
here is another page that will help you ........
I have a site with some diagrams on adjusting the cable travel & 4 way valve but no step x step instructions. That's what I was really looking for. Thanks.
send me the site , maybe I can figure it out ....it been many years since I have worked on plows, but might jog memory
I have several sites, but this is the one I was referring to
Also, a friend told me that there could be air in the right ram. What do you think?
yes that is a very good chance....That will do it
I'm going to open this web page and take a look
OK, What I got out of that (very good Page ), Pg 7 E-1 , 3 way valve needs to be adjusted, CCW 1/8 of a turn
disconnect plow before adjusting, per instructions
OK. We'll try that. Won't be able to do it until tomorrow morning tho. Thanks Wayne
YOu are welcome
Tried adjusting the cable, but no help. There must be a valve stuck somewhere. When I try to angle left the pump sounds like it has reached the end of the travel. Got any ideas?
It was not the cable to Adjust but the 3 way valve
go to page 7 , #31, adjust the valve 1/8 " CCW
Sorry, I can't find #31. can you help?
in the drawing, that is
sure hold on, I will pull it up again
OK, Go to page 7, on the left side of page , is E 1, Right side of page is E2
at the bottom of page, it's called fine tuning
do you see it ???
Sorry, I was trying to adjust the cable to the 4 way valve. I'll try the 3 way valve tomorrow.
I turned the 3 way valve CC 1/2 turn (1/8 turn four times) but no help. Could a check valve or some other valve be sticking?
Well, judging by that Diagram, and trouble shooting ,That 4 way valve cold be bad,
Did you try to bleed the cylinder ?? crack fitting loose, any engage to left side and bleed Possible air from it
let me Know
Hello, Ja Customer, Just wondering where we are with this
Let me know
OK. Today I loosened the top fitting on the 4 way housing and ran the plow right, then manually back left. I think I got all the air out of the system. Then I switched the hoses on the angle rams. I pulled the stick left, and the plow angled right. I pushed the stick right but the plow did not come back, same as before. I think that means there is nothing wrong with the 4 way valve. Could there be something wrong with that right ram?
You know what, hard to figure out problems, with out being There, this is no a cop out, But put your self in my shoes, I have given all I can, looked at Diagrams, From here on out I would be guessing.........
that is not what you want, well if all was OK, then this problem happened, you checked all adjustments, well may that a ram is bad ............That being said, I do not have any more info for you , Sorry..........
Merry Christmas, to you and yours
Thanks for your help. I'll accept your answer and keep working on it.
Merry Christmas !
