I have an '08 JD X728 that I was putting on my new Quick Hitch for the snowblower. After I routed the hoses these two fittings that go into the SCV are rotated 180° from where they should be pointed. They are facing away from the SCV when they should be facing toward the SCV so they can be hooked up. I know very little about hydraulic fittings other than putting them in a quick disconnect and removing them. That looks like a "P" on the one side of the fitting and there is "SK1020" on the other side. I assume this is a Parker fitting? Can the fitting be rotated 180°? I don't want to start wrenching on this and mess something up. Here is a pic of the fittings.

Hold fitting, with "P" on it, with a wrench. Loosen nut on left end of fitting about 1/4 turn. Fittings can now be rotated to what ever position and nut retightened. Bob

Your hoses have female swivel nuts. When you tighten the hose swivel nuts to the 90° fitting (with the P on it) watch that the hose does not turn too. It might take three wrenches and three hands
