OK - looks like you are using some variant of the Selectrol valve to power the loader off the tractor hydraulics. Your connections are as follows
- Pressure OUT on the selectrol valve goes to IN on the loader control valve
- OUT on the loader valve goes to the return on the selectrol valve.
- Each spool on the loader valve has two work ports on the top side. For the bucket spool one port goes to the base connection on the cylinders and the other port goes to the rod end connection. You do the same for the other spool and the lift cylinders.
- Since you have two cylinders on the bucket and lift arms you need to use tees to connect the cylinders together. Run the line from the each workport to the right side cylinder and make the connection there with a tee. Then run another line from that tee to the cylinder on the left side of the loader. You may find it more convenient to put the tee in the middle of thoise runs to keep the length of hose needed to a minimum. In the interest of neatness I would suggest someplace other than the work porstr on the top of the valve as you currently have them. I would also suggest you ditch those plumbing elbows and replace them with steel high pressure hydraulic fittings like the pipe swivels you have in the elbows. You can use high pressure 90* swivel elbows which will keep the fitting count to a minimum and make the installation a lot neater and more professional.
