Hi, This is not all that uncommon. It is usually caused by the lift lever being twisted in the area between where it goes through the frame and the bend. This caused the lever bihind the frame to not go over center. If you get a lever from a newer tractor it will be heavier, and probably not bend. I will try to post a part # tomorrow after I have gone to the shop. Good luck, AL

I think they are already made heavier now just by ordering the same replacement part that you have.

If you order a 1685412 lever and 172038 knob, It will be heavier and longer and more user friendly. Good luck Al
