 Using a log splitter on 2630

Part of your problem is the splitter you are using is probably setup for open center hydraulics. Your Ford was open center, but the John Deere is closed center. When an open center valve is hooked to closed center tractor, it will cause the pump to cavitate. Did the hydraulic hoses start jumping or shaking? That is probably why the coupler keeps coming undone. The control lever on the tractor is not designed to stay engaged. You can use the rear couplers if you have a closed center valve, but you will need to tie the lever back with a bungee cord. You might get better flow(faster cycle times on the cylinder) if you put a "tee" in each of the lines where the loader connects under the right step. These connections will provide hydraulic power as soon as the engine starts without having to engage any levers. I hope that makes sense to you and doesn't confuse you futher.

 Using a log splitter on 2630

The 2630 JD has a closed center hydraulic system and does not need a 'power beyond'....in fact there is no such thing as 'power beyond' with this type system. You can get hydraulic pressure anywhere you can tap a pressure line and you will not have to worry about a pressure relief valve....this particular pump has it's own built in. You never said, but does your log splitter have it's own control valve for the splitting cylinder or are you wanting to operate that cylinder with the tractor remote lever? I'm assuming it has it's own, otherwise you shouldn't be having the problem you describe. A cylinder is a cylinder and has no knowledge of 'open' and 'closed' center hydraulics....control valves are a different story and will have to match the tractor system to function properly. One way you can usually tell (with a valve that was taken from another application) an open center valve is, it should have had 3 hoses connecting it to the tractor.... one would be a pressure port...one is a return to system pressure....the other is a low pressure return to sump. A closed center valve only uses two hoses...one pressure the other return (low pressure). If your splitter has it's own valve, there is a chance that it is one that can be converted to work with either of the two system types....you would need a special fitting to go from open to closed. If you know what brand valve you have it shouldn't be hard to locate that conversion fitting.
