You can and should if possible return the "return" side oil through a cooler if possible, then to tank. But NOT the " power beyond" , this has capacity to blow the cooler and lines apart as it carries system pressure. It can be used to power anything down stream and still gives your steering top priority. So if plumbing this valve be sure it is the first thing coming out of the charge pump. Use the power beyond to run any other valves you may have, like for a deck lift, or 3 point hitch. Or even a plow blade.

Guys, I think there may be several different conversations going on here. Due to the nature of hydraulics and the potential for high pressures... We need to get this back on track and make sure mike is getting the info he needs. I don't want to perpetuate an argument or start a fuss here... But:

If I read this right, everyone agrees that the correct thing to do IN MIKES (okiegt's) SITUATION is:
Either to plumb it back into the return line or dump back into the reservoir somehow.

Is this a correct statement?

Just tee in to the return line with that extra port . You can't plug it though , It is the "power beyond" port and must have flow through it .

 This is the correct statement .

Sometimes these discussions get misunderstood, especially with a highly technical subject like hydraulics. I appreciate everyones advice and help and know everyone was trying to do their best. No problem two step, it wouldn't have been any issue at all if I was a little more knowledgable about the subject. Again, Thanks to all. Mike
