I know this is OT, but I am looking for a Hydraulic control valve like used on a loader. It needs 2 spools and 1 needs to "float". Has any one brought one that they like? I know there is a lot of knowledge on here is why I ask. You can PM me if you do not want to post. Thanks, Dan.
There is a forum called "Old Iron Heavy Equipment forum .com" Perhaps someone there could point you in the right direction. I'll contact a good friend who collects and rebuilds old tractors and heavy equipment to see where he gets stuff but he is slow in responding.
Search hydraulic control valves yourself. Should be dozens (at least) of sites.
I've bought a few here:
Or Bailey Sales, right near you in Carolina. Used them lots, always did good. Dave in Bellingham, Wa
I get mine from Surpluscenter.com. They have a knowledgeable sales force as well.
Also check Surplus Center.
Dan- I just replaced the joystick on my John Deere loader. Part #RE222004
Curl, dump, up, down, & 2 float postions.
