Hello all. Ive been restoring a 149 and building a FEL along the way. Ive read a million discussions about the hydraulic configurations but im still lost as to what size pump i need. All 4 cylinders i plan to use are freebies from a friend. I have 2 that are like 2 to 2-1/2" bore x like 10"ish for the bucket tilt and 2 stillwell 3-1/2" bore x like 20"ish. All the stuff ive read says 4-6gpm is ideal. That being said, its usually when referring to using the 2" bore x 16" main lift cylinders. Do i need a faster pump since i'll obviously have more volume in my cylinders? I really want to utilize whats been given to me plus it will drastically reduce cost if i can lol. If anyone could tell me what pump i need it would be greatly appreciated. I attached a pic or 2 of the cylinders. Oh, and its got the stock 14hp k321 engine in case anyone is wondering. Thank you very much
