Craftsman 53985 garage door opener

I have a Sears Craftsman 53985 garage door opener. I need to revert the way it opens [run clockwise- to the right]; I want to run to the left [counterclockwise]. The reason is to open TWO doorS [two individual leaves] of garage that open toward outside.I have seen the garage door working that way[counterclockwise]; but always have been done by Sears Technicians.

You want to do something that is so wrong it is crazy. An opener should never be connected to 2 doors and to reverse the opening and closing would also reverse the safeties. This is a very dangerous situation you are asking for.
