Also the setup you describe will only give you single acting one way flow just to be sure.
    ...... and should be going back into the tank through the return filter
    If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!

    If it's single acting why does it have 2 blanking plugs on the valve block? Which I thought on would be flow and the other return

    any chance of some pix of all this Boyo?
    could well be flow and return, but only acting in one direction .. non reversible .. i.e. the flow will always be flow and the return will always be return - to the block ... can you remind me why you want a free to tank return .. are you fitting a breaker or a flail?

    Hi I'll try and get some today. And it's for a breaker so only single flow needed. I thought both would just go to the valve block but my hose maker is adamant it should go to the tank

    yep .... free return to tank ..... breakers do not like any back pressure
