As you guys know I purchased a JD 54 plow. Got it repaired and mounted. The lift cylinder works great the angle cylinder does'nt. If I switch ports the same results occur. Also, the mount on the plow for the angle cyl. is missing from the plow. Anyone have one? Anyone got an idea whats wrong w/ the cyl. Thanks.

Not sure what could be going on with that cylinder. Do you mean that you switched the lines at the valve ports and it wouldn't move when using the lift lever? Could one of the quick connect connectors be stuck? Does the shaft look straight on the cylinder? On the newer blades with the quick hitch the 2 cylinders are the same except for the plumbing fittings. If you disconnect the lines at the cylinder you should be able to move it by hand.
