what does it mean when a valve is posted on ebay as this... "Chief 1 Spool Hydraulic Control 3 Way or 4 Way Valve". i have 2 way cylinders. from what i understand it means i could operate the 2 cylinders for the raise/lower and (1) 2 way cylinder for the dump bucket on my loader? is that a reasonable assumption?

First of all, you would have your cylinders connected in a parallel circuit so they extend and retract at the same speed using one spool in the valve.

Four way, by my assumption, would mean power up, power down, float, and hold.

Would you be able to find a site for the manufacturer of the valve and with a part number, find a spec sheet?
