Hydro lever lock

I have had several hydro tractors, and not one had a working lock for the hydro lever. They never have that little ball bearing in them. Is this common that they fall out? I have to hold the lever on my 4040 to keep constant speed. Do I have to go to Simp, or can I get a specific bearing ball?

Hello I believe the ball bearing in that 4040 is 5/16 can get at ace hardware smaller tractors are 1/4.

Hello I think I just had the lever a bit forward of neutral squeezing the lock like your moving the lever & pulling it away from the steering wheel a little bit & pushed the ball in from the back & it fell right in the hole may have had to use a small punch to push it but I don't think so.

The ball bearing is part number 166178 and is 5/16 diameter. And is the same in the B series and the 3415H. Any desent hardware store would carry them.
