Just swap the hoses over on the hydraulic motor, behind the kick panel in front of your feet. There is no actual reversible steering setting on this machine so maybe somebody changed it for some reason or put it back incorrectly.

these trucks have the access123 system on them
i would check and make sure and see if you can change steering direction via the control settings before you go and start swapping hoses.
The hyster i3 system allows steer direction to be changed in computer, and these are very similar to the crown access123 system.

You've been swooped!

Any ideas where in the system that setting would be?

well there would be 2 ways to access it most likely
- through a laptop program provided by crown (available only to crown techs)
- through the service menu on the truck (technician service menu)

Do as techno said. This steering is hydraulic controlled. So the only way to do it is by swapping hoses.

Im a crown tech, just swap hoses, it will be fine..

Yeah. just switch the hoses on the hydraulic motor. Thats how the manual tells you to change the steering.
