Hi my name is***** will help you with this. If your machine is not equipped with a pattern changer you will nee to switch the pilot lines on the control side of the pilot manifold. Trace the main lines from the boom cyl and arm/stick cyl back to the main control valve and tag them boom up/down and Arm in/out then follow the pilot lines for each of the 4 functions. You will switch Boom up with Arm in and boom down with arm out on the pilot side of the circuit. Let me know if you need more help.
