Another way to get messed up pressure with two spool in tight quarters both spools hooked to same cylinder.Two hoses crisscrossed making dead head.
Only one cylinder hooked up at the moment. Unused valve is capped right now.
What's the model of you tractor? Also is the return line from the valve open and routed to tank?
This is the AC 718H I put the Ford rear end in. It is an Eaton11/Peerless 2500 Hydro.
Kenny does this valve have power beyond?? If all your spools leak that bad, you have a low pressure return issue, something is not correct, and the flow is being blocked. Get a bucket and unhook the return hose and get the open ends in it. Start rig up at idle and see if you have good flow before and after filter, then check the fitting that goes into the hydro on the side to be sure all is well there and it has no restrictions .
The charge pumps on the Eaton 11 are not a hi pressure unit, the internal one is that drives them.
No power beyond Keith. The valve is from a MF/Snapper 1655/1855. Your drawing is how it is plumbed without the power beyond. Here is a pic of the valve with markings as to how I have the lines hooked up.
I have all new lines on it(except the return from the filter), including a cooler and new filter housing. The outlet of the valve goes to the cooler, then to the inlet of the filter. Outlet of filter returns to the side of the pump.
I'll try opening the return from filter line and see if there is good flow back to the pump.
