Pge 27 in manual, shows that the S2 and the S3 solenoid has to open for the blade to angle left. That is the only difference between right and left angle. Are you opening both solenoids for the left angle.

Hi Thank you for that

this is a western Plow, (very good Plow)

then the issue is in the , valve body of the Hyd system

a check valve is sticking, the ball or spring is stuck

release all pressure , plow down then remove all the

nuts witch hold the check vales and by pass valves

I have found on ours 2x ice was in there , due to moisture in system

cleaned all up , changed fluid , all was good

I hope this helped you
