Just installed one of Mark Carter's toplinks this weekend. Works like a charm. Now this cylinder has check valves built in to prevent drift in position. Question: Is it possible to backfit check valves to the loader cylinders and has someone out there done this??

Yes it is possible and no I have never seen it done. The exact DPOCV on the CCM cylinders are not available here in the USA. You can buy similar ones but they are larger and would probably present a problem with mounting. In any event you would need two of them. The bottom line from my perspective is that it's not practical.
