Hello Folks,

I have an HT-20 and I want to add a third hydraulic circuit. So I figure no problem, I buy a 3 valve set up from a JD400, put it in and the "aux" for the power angle plow works as I expected, but the main circuit no longer has "float", the control valve looks identical to the two valve unit that I pulled off. Any idea's?

Thanks,
Phil

i thought that the JD had float if the valve is the same you could put the spool and float end from ht20 into the valve from the jd 400

A few pics of both valves would really help?

I would think one of the 3 should have float. It may not be the circuit you expected it to be. The float circuit should have a longer cap on the valve. It could be stuck and won't go into the float position.
