Yes on both, but personally, pump feed line and return I would rather see 3/8 hose. 4.3 gpm is a little small but will work, it just may be kinda slow. 5.5-6.5 gpm pump would be ideal and make for an enjoyable experience. If this rig has tubing running down the arms feed these from the valve ports with 3/8 hose as well. Feed the cylinders from the tubes with 1/4 inch hose.

Hey skyrydr just wondering how big off a hydro tank I'm going to need for my system. I'm using 4 2in x 16in stroke pistons. My towers are 2X3 25 in tall will they hold enough fluid to run the loader?

If the tubes are actually full length you would only fit about 3/4 gallon in them all totalled.even with 4.3 gpm that's a bit too small for an efficient system. You should have 1/3 oil storage to pump gpm. Not total volume of system, just storage. 4.3 gpm pump= roughly 1.5 gallons of oil resivior( actually it's 1.433) so some how you need a bit more storage. This also needs to account for expansion as well when things start to warm up.
So you never want to fill the tank to the top.... Or you will have a mess.
Just remember, your not continuously using the loader, but the engine is running pumping oil so this circulating oil needs enough volume to keep itself and the pump cool.

Thanks skyrydr for the help I just picked up a hardy 35 st loader complete with cylinders and hoses but still need a pump and tank. Going to go with the 6.5 gpm pump as you suggested and I'll have to fabricate a tank. Thanks for the help.

You will want to use as close to the same size as the driven pulley so your ratio is 1to1 . The pump you getting has a 6.7 gpm at 3600 rpm correct ? That's pretty good flow, should work like a dream. Are you going to drive this pump with the pto clutch or off the flywheel side?
I would try to use at least a 3.5" pulley set for the flywhweel side, 4" would be better. Belt traction MUSTbe more than you relief pressure setting or you will go through belts like tic-tacs.. And running too much tension on the belt is just plain bad for everything. The pto side has 2 pulleys on it, 4.5 inside and 6 outside. Only thing that uses the 6" pulley is the deck, front and rear pro attachments, even loader uses the smaller inside pulley.

   I'm not a hydraulics expert but I do have 3 loader tractors here now and a couple of excavators. Depending on the diameter of your cylinders to my way of thinking your 6 gals a minute is over kill. With a pump that large you could run your pump at 2/3rd's speed and still have plenty of flow. It would make your engine easier to turn over when starting if it's live and you would be generating a lot less heat. I had a 2 gallon pump on my Johnson loader and it was about perfect. It now has a 1.4 gallon pump on there (recommended by Surplus Center) and it is a little slow but I'm not cavitating the pump or blowing seals anymore. 

  Just my opinion and you can take it for what it's worth.

Thanks guys. Tom I haven't got to the bucket yet I'm hoping for some time next weekend to get it built and painted. Thanks for the advice cvans may have to check on that when the weather warms up staying around -15 to - 20c here for the last week or so.
