Please stop me if this has been addressed elsewhere.
I want to add the power beyond kit to my 1026r, which has the 3rd SCV kit installed from the dealer. I use the 3rd SCV for my hydraulic top link and don't want to lose that function. I also want to get the backhoe, so I need the power beyond function too.
The question I have is can I add "T" fittings to the two ports that the 3rd SCV attaches to in order to connect the power beyond?
The 3rd SCV I have uses banjo fittings, so I know I can't connect there, but maybe at the port in and at the return?
No sir, you can't simply "T" into those lines. Fluid will flow through the path of least resistance. Those T's will provide an alternate path and simply bypass any work you'd ask of your 3rd SCV or PB loop. It must be plumbed in series. In a nutshell, the "out" of the SCV will go into the "in" of your PB, the return of your PB will go where the original "out" of your 3rd SCV goes now.
