I don't think it would be easy to add a valve to the block. I think a selector valve would have to be used that is why I am thinking a miniature electric pump. I also see that many small hoes have a manually operated thumb that may be a option. :)

If you go the manual route, make the geometry, and holes, so that you can swap out the link with a ram down the road.  While a fixed will work, the finesse you have with a hydraulic ram is fantastic.

I wish that I was, but no. I am seriously trying to make plans now to go next year so I can meet some of the great members of the Forestry Forum. Thanks for the offer, but for now I may just make a manual thumb to see how  usefull one is on a machine this small.  thanks again.  :)
