    The other thing to consider is the GPM flows increase on the return stroke proportionately as the rod displacement increases.....generally not a problem but return flow rate must not exceed the ratings of the DCV......

    recently rebuilt a wood processor cyl 3.5 rod x 5.0 bore......they had a pilot-to-open check valve tee'd in to the base end port to drain off directly to the tank when returning....

    Thanks. Do you guys think the 5x24x2 will be ok if I'm pushing a push plate and not a wedge?

    Surely that ought to do.

    yes that will do just mine. It doesn't matter if you are pushing a wedge or a plate, as long as you use something to keep it straight. Some splitters use a guide that sandwiches the beam others like your Huskee in your sig use the "log cradle" to keep the rod straight.
