I have a motor to turn a blower shoot around and back. Will this turn it one way then reverse it back and stop it when when it is in neutral?
A: Yes, this is a double acting spool which will turn a motor in both directions as long as the correct coil is energized. The work ports in this valve are open to tank in neutral, so if any forces on the chute are strong enough to turn the motor shaft it will not hold a position. In that case a cylinder spool with work ports blocked in neutral may be better suited to the application.

i need a 12 volt valve to run 2 cylinders separetly from my 12 volt pump. 5gpm is enough
A: Item 9-7988 is an open center motor spool. The outlet port on the block is rated for full pressure, so they can be run together in series. Only one spool could be operated at once when plumbed in this fashion.

When the valve is in neutral, will the outlet ports hold pressure? I am using a DA cylinder, will the cylinder hold a load when the coils are not energized?
A: No. All the ports are rated for full pressure, but this is a motor spool and the cartridge is not designed to hold a load in neutral.
