Question Help with full hydro on a Ford

Ok, couldnt get a reply in the newbie section so i'll try it here. I bought a Charr-Lynn steering valve from surplus center that is rated for 2-4gpm and it is 8.9 displacement, I have a 2.5" x 8" single ended ram, will I be able to operate it with a stock Saginaw pump from a 1972 Lincoln?

I am putting rockwells under a 78 F-250 and will be running 44 to 49 inch ag tires, im sure ill need some turning help. Any help will be appreciated, Dave

I have read that a couple times but im not sure what I need to measure on the cylinder or the how to get the flow rate and psi from the saginaw pumps that lincoln and Ford used.
I ordered that valve based on the output of the chevy pumps at about 2gpm so I figured the ford version couldnt be that much different. I'd really like to here from others that have done full hydro and what size valve they used.

Hydro

I am using a 2" bore 8" inch stroke ram powered of a saginaw and love it. Also using the char lynn. The only thing you might run into with the 2.5" is slower turning speeds or more turns of the steering wheel.
