Shifter linkage

New to the group . I bought a used ariens ST824 model 932101 it appeared very clean, runs great and reasonably priced !
The issue is the shifter linkage in the case housing fell off. It looks like a horrible design. The washers are gone and now I understand why it was cheap.
Any advice on making a permanent repair ?

Thank you

I've had the Dubious Task of dealing with this. If the shift Fork moves "up and Down" vs "side to side", the 2 washers will fall out, and the fork will jump off the Friction wheel assembly. It is a Terrible Design, and takes patience to reassemble things. I had one that once I got it back together, I cut a 5/16 washer in half, and welded it on to the fork shaft one half at a time (outside the chassis) in a way that it would stop the "up and down" movement. This kept the fork from falling out. You'll need to get the 2 special washers from Ariens to put it back together, They are an oddball size. Part 06439200
