    Re: Direction of flow from diverter valve

    How to get out of regen?...just move it a little, not a lot? If so I've moved a little...I moved it a lot too.

    I just retested in the non functional hook up. I can feel and hear the hydraulic...

    Re: Direction of flow from diverter valve

    Everything is plumber correctly...remember the grapple WORKS. I just want the shut or clamping action of the grapple to happen when I pull the joystick inward, which is the same as the curl up.

    Re: Direction of flow from diverter valve

    The switch on the valve, is just make/break, doesn't matter which side the power comes from...right?

    Re: Direction of flow from diverter valve

    No I don't. Got the valve from Brain (MtnViewRanch), I messaged him on this lastest test for his input. He would be the one to have a schematic if anyone has.

    I need to go out and...

    Re: Direction of flow from diverter valve

    Yep...when I say I switched the hoses at the diverter....it is those hoses switched the way you describe, that I'm switching. Those two hoses go straight to the grapple cylinder.

    Remember...the...

    Re: Direction of flow from diverter valve

    Well....you guys ain't going to believe it.

    Eliminated the QDs using a pipe to pipe coupler like J_J mentioned. Tested, everything worked, except it was still backwards from the way I want it to...

    Re: Direction of flow from diverter valve

    Not sure of the 'power'...but initial movement is slow...far right/left is fast, on mine.

    Bottom line, you guys say switch the hose, and that does not work. I'm thinking I will somehow connect...

    Re: Direction of flow from diverter valve

    All ball AG type.

    I thought this would be easy change....reason I went to the diverter and switched the hoses, since the hoses are slightly different length, and it staggers the position of the...

    Re: Direction of flow from diverter valve

    Yep...I realized that.

    J_J...I did switch the hoses, once at the diverter without touching the QDs, then once again at the QDs. Both times, hooked one way, grapple works, hooked the other way it...

    Re: Direction of flow from diverter valve

    It just occurred to me.....

    I want the grapple to clamp with joystick pulled left....that is an extension of the grapple cylinder.

    Joystick pulled left curls up....that is a contraction of the...

    Re: Direction of flow from diverter valve

    Did some experimentation. You need to lower fel/curl/grapple with motor off to relieve pressure once you quit whatever. I knew this from past grapple use, but kind of forgot. I had to discouple...

    Re: Direction of flow from diverter valve

    I don't know what regen/fast dump means. Could you enlighten me.

    I simply installed the diverter in the flow of the curl hydraulic lines...at the point the loader connections are. The grapple...

    Re: Direction of flow from diverter valve

    That's exactly what I did, and the grapple wouldn't move no matter how I curled it. Diverter is working, since I held on to the grapple hose as I worked it. Really confused on this.

    The grapple was closed, cylinder extend when I switched them. I made a point of keeping the hydraulic flow path going to the curl function the same when I installed the diverter. Seems changing any...

    Re: Direction of flow from diverter valve

    Wouldn't that also change the direction of the curl when the valve isn't active?

    Top hoses to grapple. Left side to the loader curl. right side flow from the tractor.
