Clark CFY40B:
Load lowering valve question

I have a GCX20E forklift.
We just replaced seals on the center lift cylinder.
I think we may have re-installed the load lowering valve incorrectly.
Does anyone have a diagram of how this valve should be re-assembled.
After re-installing the cylinder, I now get mixing of the lift between the center cylinder and the outer cylinders - before, the center cylinder would fully extend first, then the outer cylinders would extend. Now all three cylinders tend to extend together. Also, the lowering speed of the center cylinder is much slower than before.

Any help is much appreciated!
