I bought a valve(s) setup for an 1855. Very happy with the purchase, but need a question answered about one of the fittings. In the pic below, what fitting goes into the lower right? Is it by chance a straight JIC 6 to an 8 o-ring?

Just trying to figure out what is needed for it. I bought this from Dayton_King. I have the spool out to be repaired in case you are wondering.

I don't know the hydraulic terms, but it is a JIC fitting with the standard thread o-ring base.

Since every thing else on it is a JIC 6M, then I'll get the fitting I posted above. Thanks!

Were does that port that Kenny is referring to, go? Deck lift? 3 point hitch? And what side of the cylinder? Because it is an odd port and a different size we are curious is all;-)

Keith, I don't think it is for deck lift as the other valve has the detent on it. I think it goes with the rear lift.

I borrowed this pic from a PM with Dayton_King about the valve. May explain a few things. Pretty sure it is the rear lift valve. That may be why it has the restrictor hole to slow the cylinder.

That port is for the base end of the 3PH cylinder. The restriction is to control the rate of drop when lowering the implement. The tiller for these puppies weighs 385 lb and will land HARD with an unrestricted port. That's not a problem in the garden, but you wouldn't want to do it on the garage floor. It lands hard enough even with the restrictor.

Thanks, Bob! Kinda thought it was for a reason like that, but you never know.
