Not sure if you’d want to.
But if you connected the hoses together and left the tractor hydraulics in a continuos flow then it would solve the problem of volume as the oil would constantly be maintained at the same pressure by the tractor.
Just set the tractor flow to minimum to make sure it doesn’t put more oil than what can go through the vavlve so it doesn’t do any work on the ram.

For anyone familiar with a planter vacuum hydraulic circuit hookup at at tractor, would that work? It’s basically the return hydraulic line has the “ball” in the end of the tip removed. It is kind of like a simple way to create a case drain.

I connected the 2 lines and ran a tee line to the case drain on the tractor. It floats like a dream. It didn't float after only connecting them together. Had to run another line to the drain. SO now I just close the 2 lock valves and the Tee valve and travel. Works great. Found a new use for an old tractor that has no value to anyone but me. Very happy! Stay safe!
