I bought this valve and have now changed the function for this valve and would like to have a third position detent. Can I buy the detent separately?
A: We do not carry a detent kit of any kind for this valve.

I have a gear pump that will power hydraulic motors, the hydraulic motors have to be locked in the neutral position. Will the motors lock in neutral if I use this "cylinder spool valve"?
A: The work ports will be blocked in neutral, meaning no flow will pass through the motor as soon as the valve is in neutral. If there is a flywheeling mass attached to the shaft, this could cause damage if the motor comes to an abrupt stop. The motor will only hold as much load as is accommodated by the internal friction. Any internal slippage in the motor will result in possibly unwanted motion. If the application is critical that no movement occurs, additional physical braking mechanisms must be put into place.
