I have a 63 Bolens 800 and the high/low linkage seems to be broken. The rod that goes threw the dash area has a lot of slop in it. There is a tab near the end of that rod that looks like it broke off. It still works so im not sure if it is supposed to be that way cause i saw a video and it was the same way.
