Thank you , if I had found that information in the beginning that is the route I would have chosen. I spent a day on line doing what research I could and wasn't even sure if the L35 had a beyond port so the diverter was the easiest and cheapest as I could find. I appreciate the help but alas, it is too late. Parts have been shipped. Even looking now I see twenty different "generic D03" valves so wouldn't know where to start.You have obviously made your choice and the diverter will work fine. You actually lose very little functionality using a diverter given the operation of Kubota loader valves.
But you can roll your own "true" 3rd function for much less than $900.
At that point you are at $390 and 90% of the way there. The remainder is the same hoses, fittings, couplers, and brackets you need for a diverter.
- A generic D03 solenoid valve with manifold is $200.
- A joystick handle with harness is $185 from Summit.
