answer 2
I highly recommend that you stay clear of the check valve in your suction line, if you are using a hydraulic pump. I did not see a cracking pressure for this check valve, but chances are high that it is around 5psi (5psi is pretty common) which means it will create a vacuum of ~10inHg. If your pump is a hydraulic pump, this is a disaster waiting to happen. You always want to keep pump inlet vacuum to a bare minimum, because if the vacuum gets too high you will cavitate your pump and that is a sure death sentence for it. If you need a check valve to keep an oil column in your suction line, you are probably dangerously close to cavitating the pump already.
