    Default Hydraulic Place Diverter Help

    Got a bit of an issue, my place diverter seems to be slow going up. It almost seems like there is air in the line or something. I have a relay, its grounded to battery.The motor runs strong but seem to be lacking. The troublesome part about this is with the diverter either all the way up or all the way down I can move it manually. I mean it takes pressure but it moves. I think maybe I have a bad solenoid or two or possibly a bad cylinder. Plenty of fluid, I flushed the lines with fresh ATF and bled the air out. Any help would be great. Also is there a way to test the solenoids or cylinder? Thanks

    Switch the lines and see if the reverse happens , simple to do

    Will do. If it does the same but opposite then what would that tell me. I have to admit the 4 solenoids on the top have me a bit lost on the fluid dynamics.

    Assuming it has adequate pwr and grd it will point to a weak pump/motor . also BTW twist each solenoid loose (very slight) and then tight to a very lite "seat" (not tight) and retry call if we can help further Tom

    Swapped lines and had the same issue only in reverse, down slow and up fast. I loosened the solenoids and light seated and no change. What's my next move?

    I'd likley be thinking of a pump assembly replacement assuming it has adequate voltage/current Tom

    Place Diverter typically has a pretty liberal warranty policy to first purchasers , just a thought

    Default Fixed!!

    I spoke with Tim at PD and he walked me through a couple of things and wouldn't you know works like a charm. Lightening fast up and down. Probably the best part was he was going to warranty the motor for me regardless. What a great experience.

    I am also interested in what you did to fix the problem. And you were saying it was slow going up and down. Was this with the motor off on the trailer or while running? I ask because with my motor off the pump struggles to move the place diverter. But when it's running inthe water it moves it fine. Wondering if maybe I need to take a look at mine too. So please explain what you did/didn't do to fix your issue.
