As you probably already know, if it's 995, it's hydrostatic so your speed will be determined by the forward/neutral/reverse lever off the side of the dash. There should also be a hi/lo lever for the transaxle.
And yes, the numbered lever is going to be your deck height.

thanks, first 1 i ever owned, from reading says u will have more torque by pulling closer to neutral wondering if when in neutral and tractor goes back a little will that have any effect on low speed going forward, when first taking it out of neutral doesnt feel as powerfull as it does when i put it in reverse seems to have more torque when in reverse first engaging then it does when first engaging in forward

It sounds like your neutral position is in need of adjustment. If you can find a service manual it should tell you how to do this. If not you will have to give the linkage a good look see and figure out what's up. A good cleaning and lube job may help the problem.
