If I do have to pull mine out Gabby, I'll just pick up a 3 lever spool and go through it before putting it back in. That way I can get rid of the lockout valve and have a dedicated control lever for the 3PH.Forgot to include these photos comparing the valves

First photo left to right
Center photo is the 317 & 318 H2 valves
- 317 H2 control valve
- Note: the power beyond port (BYD) on left side of valve is where Brantly power steering cylinder hose connects. Hydraulic flow out that port to steering cylinder and from cylinder to sump.
- 318 H2 control valve ... note: detented spools are reversed location and BYD port not machined in this valve.
- 420/430 H3 valve.
Last photo is the 318 and 420/430 H3 valves.
- Again, the detented spools are reversed rotation
- I need to figure out which circuits I want detents on ... frt right for sure but which on mid or rear.
These were high pressure hydraulic compression T's made for this application Gabby. Not ordinary automotive or plumbing T's. No leaks in entire system.Gabby,
The 3/8" compression fittings should work fine at garden tractor system pressure, did it many times in past. Much easier and faster than making 37° double flare (that doesn't leak).
Nice story on H3 conversion.
