DOUBLE SELECTOR VALVE Brand New PRINCE Allows one control valve to operate 2 different double acting cylinders or reversible motors. Also use to select between two different circuits from one hydraulic source.
does this valve only have two positions? and no center
A: This is a double selector valve and has no center position, yes. This is not a directional control valve and should not be attempted to be used as such.

Does this valve stay in the selected position with a detent?
A: The spool is not detented. In use line pressure typically is enough to hold the spool in place.

Am I correct in thinking that two separate circuits can be selected by the plunger position and also where each circuit can flow either direction within the selected position?
A: Correct. A double selector takes the work ports from a directional spool valve to its inlets, and then selects one function or another depending on the selector's spool position. Flow from the directional spool is then extended to the individual function as if there were no selector. The individual function ports are never connected to each other.

I have a hydraulic motor and would like to be able to run in each direction will this work and how do i plumb it. Thanks
A: No, this is only a selector valve to allow two functions to be operated from the same directional control spool at different times. You would need a directional control valve to operate a hydraulic motor in either direction.

I have a wood splitter, and I am adding a Log Lift to it. As I understand it, my detent valve will work both with this in the loop?
