If the auger lever isn't staying put, start by inspecting the linkage, and pay close attention to the cam lock boss. Make sure nothing is binding or stiff, and is properly lubricated with a light touch of general-purpose grease where indicated.

Be sure the return spring is in place, as well as the washers, cotter pin, and the small ratchet hardware is okay. Inspect the bushings near the cam lock boss for wear or slop, and be sure all hardware is properly tightened.
Its an easy fix, had to take mine of the 3 hondas I had and have,just clean up all the old hard dirty grease that was preventing the cam lock from moving and clean up the spring, I used 5 w30 cause it was thin to lubricate it,all worked fine after, grease tends to get dirty and hard,and on cold days goes thick and cam wont lock into place
