Right now I need to keep my foot on forwards a little just to keep it still, if I take my foot off the pedal it goes slightly into reverse.  Is this as simple as a missing spring or something under the pedal?  There's a hole right there and nothing in it:

Or do I need to adjust whatever this is called?

Find a manual!  Mosty hydros have some cams and or lever combinations to have the pedal return to Nuetral and sort of lock in place. If new enough, the brake should also make it go into neutral when applied.  A good cleaning of these mechanisms and when freed up a good lubing is best. Many have a spring to assist these operations, but more on linkage than on the actual pedal. As noted, a manual for adjust and maybe a parts manual for ID'ing the parts used in the system. Might be some of those right here if you look.

Unfortunately, this is one of the manuals that isn't in the manuals section here.  Some awesome person needs to scan and upload one.  The brake/clutch doesn't work right now, but that's third on the list after this and fixing the steering.

Fixing the brake will probably be required to adjust the pedal. Good Luck, Rick

I bet if you work on the clutch/brake pedal and get it right it will help the neutral positioning a lot also.

For your sake and sanity, I'll bet the 16H manual is real close!

Yes. I'm hoping so, anyway.

 

Went to NH and looked this up. Only see one spring for neutral return, #53.

In case anyone else ends up coming across this in a google search some day, the lgt 12 and 17 service manual has the info needed.  It is just loosening and then sliding the plate in that second picture, no need to have brakes.

That is good to know!
