    This may not be much help. but i think that it is simply a valve. I have a valve on my takeuchi that goes from one way to wo way. for hoe packing I use one way and for the thumb I fip the valve for two way. The machine if already plumbed may have a valve all ready in place.

    If it is not plummed for 2-way, you can add one. Aftermarket is the most economical. Call a local hydraulic supplier, they can walk you through it.
