Thanks for the information Jarrod. If this machine does not have the pattern change valve you will need to swap the pilot control lines at the pilot manifold or into the main control valve beside the machine cab. You need to identify and tag Boom up, boom down, arm in, and arm out. Once identified and tagged you swap boom up with arm in and them boom down with arm out.
