I lucked into a Kubota rear wheel spacer kit, and some tire chains, being sold by an ex Kubota dealer who still had a small warehouse full of stuff. I asked about a crossover relief valve, to protect my HLA 1000 snow plow's hydraulic cylinder, and the tractor, of course. He came up with a Gresen valve he thought was what I needed. When I researched it, I discovered I had a nice LOA-6-D pilot operated load check valve. I think it would be a bad idea to try to install it, but since I don't really know, maybe someone reading this knows more about them? It might just lock the hydraulics, and really blow the hoses or even the cylinder if the plow hits something. Comments are appreciated. The spacers went on nicely, with the exception of two of the 4 old studs... even with heat, they were a bear to get out.
