Default Hydraulic thumb on Takeuchi

Has anyone advice on how to add a hydraulic ram to a manual thumb on a takeuchi TB125?
I would like to make use of the Auxiliary circuit to the “hammer pipes” but I am aware that these pipes at present are “on” or “off” and not a two way ram circuit.
Thanks

could use a Cetop3 to control flow direction on your breaker, but as said .. on/off and pretty harsh ... a one way would suffice, just to reverse flow direction
or
use a 6x2 diverter and your boom swivel/offset plumbing, which'd give you proportional control and directional control on the exisiting control pedal, but feeding the thumb ram instead of the off set ram .... flick of a switch to change from thumb to offset and vice versa
