Hey guys, I recently posted in the Hydraulics forum but haven't gotten replies yet. I'm hoping that by posting here in the MF forum, I can direct some attention to my post over there (click here).

My loader valve needs replaced. See the other post for details. Thanks!

There's no reason any open center two spool valve won't work for you. Provided it's rated for whatever pump flow you're dealing with, or at least close.

That said, you might find that buying the $63 valve may not be much of a savings when you see the price of the "no problem" BSPP fittings as compared to ORB.

The single acting aspect can be easily dealt with by connecting one of the valve work ports to the sump return. You say you need to add that anyway for a new valve, so that only adds a short hose and few more fittings.

Thanks Harry, I appreciate the reply. Not sure which way I'll go yet but I'll post here if & when I make progress with a new valve.
