Wagner Autopilot Help!!!

I have a S50 Wagner autopilot with twin helms and a PV125 12 volt pumpset. The boat is new to me and I have never used the autopilot. Upon visual inspection, everything looks in perfect shape. Both helms respond beautifully with no bounce when hard over and the autopilot turns on and does everything the manual says it is supposed to. Until Section III, #4 Initial Test!!!!! The Sea State is switched on; I hear the pump start and then stop and both red and green lights come on when supposed to. While leaving the course at 30 degrees to port, or starboard I turn the Rudder control clockwise and hear the pumpset start steadily pumping. The rudder does not move at all!! Anybody have this happen to them. I don't know what to check or replace. Help!!! Also, I do not have a manual for the PV125 pumpset. My S50 manual is for the PV40 or PV100. Does anybody have one for the PV125 pumpset. Thank You in advance.
