    Here is a link to the one I used on my FEL:

    And here is a link to the post where I installed it:

    Also, if you do a search for "diverter" you will get lots more info incluging two other popular choices.

    Yes,
    Fasse makes good stuff, your JD dealer should be able to get them for you.
    In fact, member JasonL installed one on his tractor. You can PM him for more info and read about his install here:

    That diverter valve from Surplus Center is the best all around diverter valve for use on your tractor. It's less than 1/2 as expensive as some of the "name brand" others and if you don't mind fabbing your own mounting bracket it's a great buy.

    Here's a thread I posted on installing a Fasse valve on mine.

    http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/j...ighlight=fasse

    I would have liked to have gone with a WR Long, but my JD Dealer only sold the Fasse. I've tried parting and piecing hyraulics before, big PITA!!! Not enough places in my area to get what I need. Was the main reason I went with a package from the dealer. Plus if there were any issues or questions, I know I could get help.

    I noticed that surpluscenter also sells 2 other valves that look like they may work: One triple electric one and a couple of manual ones. The triple valve is even cheaper at $149 and the manual ones are cheaper still.

    Can anyone comment on the use of manual valves vs the electric ones? I'm thinking that since they don't have a solenoid, nor connections, nor relays, nor switches, that it might be more reliable in the long run.

    The triple selector looks interesting. The other two are a little overkill for CUTS at 20 gpm and 30 gpm. This means big an heavy. Take a look at the the size and weight. 10 lbs and 5"x4"x3" for the first and 12 lbs and 5"x4"x3" for the second makes them just like heavy bricks.

    Super,
    Like Mad said, those are pretty big valves! The funny thing is that I paid $149.00 for my diverter and they have been going up in price since.

    The manual diverters are cheap, but mounting it in a location you can reach and be able to get 6 hoses to it could be a real challenge! Plus the extra cost of longer hoses and extra fittings have to be considered when pricing out the whole project. The electric diverters can be mounted remotely, out of the way, and closer to the hydraulic ports.
