Your loader has two single acting lift cylinders and two double acting bucket cylinders. It is also equipped with a valve with two double acting spools which requires some thought on the plumbing. The side ports on the valve are the IN and OUT ports for the pump and reservoir but I can't tell which is which from the pictures. I would expect the body to be stamped with some sort of legend indicating which is which. There is no indication of a front pump on the loader frame so I am guessing it was using the tractor hydraulics under the seat for the loader? If so send me a picture of that area.
Before I go any further have you checked the valve and cylinders to see if there was any fire damage to the seals? Its pretty clear they got very hot.
