I want to remove the rear winch from a salvaged m936 bed and build a recovery skid to utilize on the front of a CTL (skid steer). The winch motor has more hydraulic ports than I can reason. It has (2) -20 ports which I would think to be pressure and return depending on direction. But it also has a large -24 or maybe -28 line (like maybe a low pressure return?) as well as 3 -8 lines (like maybe flushing or case drain lines). I need help ciphering how to replumb these lines to CTL (only hose options are pressure and return which can be redirected from within the cab, and a case drain). Even if I use the original valves there is still a large 3rd line that leaves the valve body and returns forward underneath the truck. What is this 3rd line?

It seems like it would drag the skid steer before whatever your pulling unless you adding spades . But in all reality I don't think the loader frame will last , a winch that size will pull it apart.

I have all that figured out. I need info about the hydraulic plumbing.

The CTL is the power source and the transportation. The “winch skid” will be tied off or anchored in the dirt so that the loader arms are not taking the pull.
