Just wondering how I would hook up a selective control valve with load sense to my JD 4710 without load sense function? Can I just plug the load sense function and hook the valve up in line with my power beyond?

LS Load Sense controls the pump. So it depends is the SCV the same "center" as your tractor? By same "center" I mean "open center" or "closed center" . These can not be mixed.

I assume you are referring to a 4710 compact tractor and not a 4710 sprayer? Not sure what load sense scv you have, but all I am aware of are closed center valves. Compact 4710 is open center and a closed center valve is not going to work. I have never heard of trying to use a load sense valve on a machine not designed for load sense. Perhaps some are made to be convertible, but I am not aware of that. I would recommend getting an actual open center valve for best chance of working properly. If you are speaking of a 4710 sprayer, then that does have pressure flow compensated system designed for a load sense valve and should work fine, but load sense line will need to be connected.
