Default Super C Hydraulics Question

On my Super c the hydraulic lines run from beside the pump control over top of the floor board to a square block mounted in front of the toolbox/seat then separate hoses run underneath the box to the three point lift ram. Since i'm installing a cab i need to reroute the lines under the floor and want to get all new hoses that need to be longer. My question is: Do i still need that box that was bolted to the floor pan? is it a equalizer/mixing valve or anything related to the pressure? I'd like to eliminate it if possible. Thanks.

I think that block contains a double acting check valve. It's main purpose would be to carry the pressure of the 3pt load instead of having the control valve handle it. There is less chance of leak down with the check valve.

So i should keep it inline? O.K. I think what i'll have to do is just reinstall it under the floor and add length to the back two hoses to reach the back lift ram. I Had a feeling the block served a purpose, but i wasn't sure. Thanks
