Kenny, do the plumbing yourself ! As it could get rediculously exspensive.
If the pump is solidly mounted, you can use steel tube to plumb to the valve and back to tank.
If you have a flaring tool and 3/8" tube bender you can do it. If you want to go this route I can tell you the part #s for the flare fittings needed. Let me know when your ready ok ?

Valve isn't mounted solid, had to hinge it for the belt tightening. But I had thought of this. Also the reservoir return is a plastic barb fitting for the return line. I am not sure if I still have a tube bender for 3/8". I'll get back on this later today.
I do have a question on the valve fittings, which line goes where. I am thinking on the cylinder fittings, when I pull the handle back for up, the fitting closest to the handle and in line with the spool will get pressure. This will go to the bottom cylinder fitting. Here's a pic of the fittings:

#1 to bottom of cylinder for up
#2 to top of cylinder for down
Does it matter which of #3 & #4 feeds/returns?

Yes! The ports should be marked some how, with "A,B,P,and T " P is for pressure, T is for Tank, A and B are work ports.

I'll take a close look at the other valve for any markings. I found this:

I put the #'s in to correspond with my earlier pic. Looks like #3 is the pressure port. But I will still look over the other valve.

Now, where to get the tube? I was thinking short hose (12") in front for hooking to pump and reservoir. Run down right side under and bend 90 degrees and come out under the valve. I can make holders for the tube that way. Left side has all the belts under there! Also, school me on how to get a bend to come out where I want it to. I have only done it by guess work before on gas lines. Weren't that critical. Copper water line isn't that hard to do. Steel is different, tube wanted to split at seam.

You can get it at the Parker store, along with the sleeves and nuts for it. Your flaring tool is 45 degree and the hydraulic fittings are 37 degrees , don't sweat it, they will tighten up just fine. You can get the fittings and a length of hose and mock up what you need , measure it, and document it, and do this for all of them. Then go back and get the hose cut and fittings crushed on.
As for bending, you just need to figure for the radius with a it math and a bit of luck, i mean skill. Lol .

My math skills are long forgotten. Stored away in some dark corner of the brain and unused for years! :bigrofl: So I better get out the rabbits foot and shamrock! Thanks, Keith! I'll check this out. Then it's finding the funds for it all.
