I did not design the system. The original builder of the boat did it 20 years ago. I just replaced everything with the same items, from the same manufacturer, as the original was, due to a broken hose. Did you read the whole thread here?
There are lot of competent guys here on the forum, who understand hyd systems.

This is my hyd. Pressure regulator. Sorry for the tilted photo.
The upper thing is the on/off solenoid. When it opens the pressure rises and that small line that turns 90* left tells the pump it needs pressure and it then supplies more fluid and pressure to run whatever my system requires. Above that hose is the pressure reg., it looks like a knurled knob. Below it is the crane/windlass selector. It moves in and out by about 3/4."
I never use that cooling fan because it howls so loud I can't stand it. In fact it is nearly history, I am redoing the engine room cooling.
