SOURCE: western snow plow when you try to angle to right

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.

SOURCE: I changed the hoses on my western sonw plow today

off the (joy-stick) in the cab, can you hear the hydraulic motor run when it's set to move to the left???,if so when you changed hoses,did you have all plow angles and heights "centered" when you did this? you may still have a lack of hydralic fluid to that position,does it try to move that way (jittery)?if so, again check for an air pocket in this line and re-bleed the system,overtime it will work itself out of the lines,but you may have it trapped in this hose run

Plow lifts great when cold gets weaker and weaker as it warms up. could it be as simple as the fluid is to thin?

  • Oil viscosity is dropping as oil warms up. Check that plow stays in up position. If plow creeps down than a leak by the piston seal or manifold valve is likely.
  • Check for contamination in tank. Suspect pump has worn and is loosing pump efficiency. Metal particles in tank are an indication pump is failing.
  • There may be a repair kit available. Make sure that system is completely clean.
  • Only use pump manufactures recommended fluid.
  • Install a pressure gauge on pump.
  • There is a pressure relief valve in the system. Ck if contamination is holding it open or spring/valve seal is bad.

I have a 93 chevy with a western unimount. was plowing and now the motor runs,but wont lift or angle. possibly something sheared off in the pump? fluid is full,and no visible leaks.

If you have a Western Plow ISARMATIC pump, a very common problem is ice forming on your pump pickup screen. This will cause intermittent up/down AND left/right functions. Western recommends the fluid be changed annually and I agree. Here's what it looks like after dirt and moisture form on the pump screen. Thats an ice chunk below the screen that appears to be a hump in the case. Be sure to verify that the pump motor is actually spinning before you suspect the pump screen. b7cfa544-07c8-441e-a344-3d5d97b0b2b0.jpg

Craftsman compressor will not come up to pressure

Don"t worry, even the best techs overlook a thing or two during repairs. Lets go over some basics to determine where fault is located. You will need to do some simple tests. If there are leaks the compressor may not reach set pressure. I use soapy water on all connections and on the head/headvalve while compressor is running. Make repairs as necessary. If still low pressure, while compressor is running and has reached max obtainable pressure (still low 70 - 80 lbs), carefully place finger over intake port hole (remove filter). If the compressor is pumping normally but leaking there will be ample suction at intake and cause the compressor to speed-up when intake is obstructed with finger. If you feel plenty of suction and no visible (soapy water) leaks, then the problem is probably the cylinder /ring is not correctly seating and air is leaking past cylinder. Make sure that the cylinder /piston ring is properly alighed and that the lip on the vinyl ring is up toward the head. If you do not feel suction but rather air seeming blowing out of the intake, then the problem is the headvalve plate/reed valves are leaking. The reeds must seal perfectly on their seats and not bent or have obstruction. Replace as necessary. Only one other thing to check and that is the intank check valve. Easy to check. Run compressor till you have about 70 lbs in the tank then unplug compressor. Carefully loosen the inlet hose at checkvalve and listen for air leaking out of tank. If leaking replace checkvalve. Use caution when removing head to try and save the gaskets. Good luck on your repair and email if you have other question.
