    Smile open opened

    When the joystick moves the spool, what happens is the ports that allow hydraulic pressure to flow to the motor are "open" or "opened?"

    The further the joystick is moved and the further the ports are "open" or "opened," the greater the hydraulic flud and pressure flowing to the motor and the fast the funciton is performed; correct?

    The further the joystick is moved and the further the ports are opened the greater the hydraulic fluid and pressure flowing to the motor and the faster the function is performed.


    "open" and "closed" are absolutes. The valve is one or the other.
    If the valve is "opened" it could be partially or fully open. Your second sentence emphasises this by saying the ports are opened further.

    The problem with your sentence is the use of '...and further':
    'the further the joystick is moved' is followed by 'AND the further the ports..."
    This suggests to the reader that these are two independent aspects of this whole operation, whereas the degree of 'opening' depends on the movement of the joystick.

    The further the joystick is moved, the greater the hydraulic pressure applied to the motor and the faster the ports are opened.
