165 Loader slow

Matt watson Hello to those out there in tractor land. I have just purchased my first tractor, a massey 165 complete with a front end loader.
My problem is the front end loader is very slow to operate, I suspect because it is connected to the auxiliary hydraulics under the seat toward the front RH side. The supply tube is pretty small underneath.
Would I be better off to use the hydrasulic supply from the two spool valves on the left side of the tractor as they currently go nowhere and seem to have much larger supply hoses from the pump.
Would appreciate if anyone outthere can advise.

GEEBEE If your loader is running off the lift pump it is going to be slow, only puts out about 4.5gmp.
However if you have the factory aux hyd on the left side, its quite possible you have the internal aux pump, this would be the best take-off for the loader, think it puts out about 9gmp

Matt watson Thanks GEEBEE for the follow up advice. I will divert oil supply from the factory aux hydraulics to my existing upper RH twin spool valve. One hose will do the trick
