Need help Ariens st504..

I feel stupid and don't really know what the heck I've done. Replaced the carb and primer hose on my st504 model 932006. In the process I removed the bracket around the gear shift lever (don't know what its called). After putting it all back together I must have messed something up or put something on wrong. Every thing with the carb and primer hose is great and she runs good. The problem is my shift lever isn't positioned in the correct location now. The shift lever normally has pressure inward towards the bracket with the indents for each gear position. You would pull the lever back a little and move it to your desired gear. Now the lever is about a half inch away from the bracket and when you move the lever side to side it doesn't feel right. The lever is super easy to move back and forth. Now I did start it and somehow it still works and drives but I know it's not right. I really don't know what I did. Hopefully I just mounted something wrong. It's hard to explain this without actually seeing it and feeling what I'm talking about but hopefully someone knows what I'm talking about. If anyone has a pic of the shift lever on one of these or a similar machine I would appreciate it.

You could also post some photos of how you have it reassembled in case someone here can see the problem in your set up.

Sounds like you are missing a spring that keeps the shift lever engaged with the detentes to hold the gear positions.

I found a pic that I had and the bracket and everything looks to be mounted correctly. It seems like maybe a spring or something has disconnected which would pull the shift lever forward into the bracket. Idk..

Is there something that is supposed keep forward pressure on the shift lever? It's used to have pressure pulling the shift lever into the bracket. Now it doesn't habe that pressure.
