I have an older CUT I bought new back in 84 and its been a great machine but its only ever had 3pth functions off the tractor hyd pump, and for years I have been using an elec/hyd power unit for aux functions,, well Ive had it with the power unit and would like to plumb a 2 spool valve into the system. Anyone do this? should I just cut the pressure line and T in a fitting? Should I make a new pressure line run to the aux valve and from the aux valve to the 3pth valve? Whats the best way?

What's the diameter of the pressure line, and how much psi & gpm does that tractor put out?

The book says 5.4 GPM, no clue on the psi the book doesnt mention it. Dia of the line is .475 OD.

That seems to be plenty big, I would think tee'ing into that would work.
