Issues with Western Isramatic Mark III after fluid change
Hello everyone! So I inherited a 1986 Chevy S-10 with a Western Isramatic Mark III plow on it, very helpful for those Michigan winters! However, I decided to change the fluid in it because to my knowledge, it hasn't been done in a long time and was actually icky looking when it came out.
So I went ahead and drained all the fluid, reinstalled the bottom drain plug, pushed the top piston all the way down as far as it would go and started filling up the reservoir. Once I get it filled up, I leave the fill plug off and lift the plow. Works just fine lifting! But it will not angle whatsoever. I can certainly hear the motor trying but nothing happens. If you go outside, you have a ton of play from side to side with it so I can certainly move it so it seems as though it's not getting any pressure through the hoses.
I guess that means I'm obviously missing something. Makes me wish I wouldn't have messed with it especially since it's so old but the lift function itself is a lot more graceful and seems to operate better than before but now until I can get it to angle, I'm kind of at a loss. Any input would be most appreciated!
I used Dexron III ATF fluid for the record.
