    Did the plow come wired to the switch or did you wire it yourself. If you did what type of switch did you use?

To turn Left you need two cylenders. I think you only have one. Any one cylender will have three wires and a ground. The ground is always connected to the vehicle ground. The other two to the Single pole double throw switch. TOne wire and a ground runs the pump one way, the other wire and the ground runs the pump the opposit direction. For left and right you must have a similar pump, motor and wiring.

Water pump for 4" well blowing fuses


Make sure you are using correct size fuse. If you are and there are no problems with the wiring to the pump. It has failed and needs to be pulled and replaced.

One check you can do is measure the resistance between the leads going down to the pump. Should be low resistance BUT NOT ZERO. I'll say anything over 2 but less than 15 ohms is good. If any two leads reads zero, it is a bad motor on the pump. If any two read infinity, the wire is broken or it is a bad motor on the pump.

SAFETY FIRST!!! Make sure you turn the power off before doing any resistance checks and you must disconnect two of the three wires before checking (if only two wires, just one).

It truns right but it wont go left


Usually they will turn the way they are designed. If your voltage is three phase, call an electrician, it is an easy adjustment.

Some submersible pumps have a gray motor box to start the pump & some submersible pumps have the new style motor box built in and is not lighting proof. some 240vac are two wire and three! I would like...


The difference in the two pumps is that with a three wire pump the start and run capacitors are in the gray box. With a two wire pump the caps. are built into the motor. Because of this with a two wire pump you only need to run the 240v down the well to the pump. The yellow wire on the three wire pumps is the igh voltage wire that come from the start cap. I have used both pums but usually use the two wire because they are easier to hookup and the wire is cheaper because you only need to run three wires. (2 hots and ground) On large HP pumps you will always have three wire motors because the caps. get too big to get them in the motor. It is best to go three phase with big pump if you can.

Western snow plow when you try to angle to right it goes up does same thing if you try to angle left


This is a control valve problem. From you comment, it is
clear that the control valve flows to one direction only.
Please check the control valve of the snow plow that
execute the angle to right or angle to left. Also check
the pipelines before and after the valve. It must have a
free flow of the fluid.

I have a Meyer mod # E-60H. Last year it seemed


You got the idea, because both the motor carbon
brushes and a weak battery is one of the major causes of your problem. So, have a check on these items.
Furthermore, also check the oil as well as the oil filter
if it needs to be replaced. When all the checks are done
and fixed, I'm sure that you will get the best result . Hope this will help you.

Western snow plow will only angle to the right . take the line off for the left and then it will angle both ways for a short time


IVE NEVER WORKED ON A SNOWPLOW BUT NOONE ELSE IS OFFERING ANY HELP. IT SOUNDS LIKE FLUID IS LEAKING BY THE VALVE AND PRESSURIZING THE LEFT SIDE ALL THE TIME. IT ALSO COULD BE YOUR NO-SPILL COUPLERS CLOGGED OR NOT OPENING FULLY PREVENTING FLOW OF FLUID ON THE LEFT SIDE. GOOD LUCK. JODY

Plow goes down too fast and hard


On the front of the pump where there are two 11/16 hex plugs... one has a filter behind it, and the other (closest one to the valve block) is where the drop speed screw is located..

Be sure to do this adjustment with the blade on the ground!....

Remove the plug and use a 3/16 allen wrench to reach in and turn the drop speed screw. Turn it counter clockwise to increase the drop speed. They're fairly sensitive so only turn it about an 1/8 at a time...

Make sure you reinstall the plug before you recheck the drop speed or the back of your blade will get a bath of plow oil..
