Honda HS828 Auger Pulley Question

I just changed the shredded belts in my 10 year old Honda HS828 snowblower and have a question as everything is working correctly but I think I didn't get something back together quite right.

There is a large lever that sits in front of the smaller drive pulley and behind the larger auger pulley. When I engage the auger this lever pivots slightly and is contacting the rear of the auger pulley which makes a pretty annoying screeching sound. The bottom of this lever looks to be some sort of belt guard? Can someone assist me in figuring out where this lever is supposed to sit as it doesn't appear to be in the proper place. An illustration would be helpful.

Hopefully someone knows what I am talking about. The belts are fine, the drive works fine and the blower and auger are working, but this lever is the issue. I have noticed that the auger lever on the handle no longer stays in place when I release it while the drive lever is still depressed. Not sure if that has something to do with it? I don't mind pulling the auger housing back off as now I am quite familiar with it but really need to know if I put everything back correctly.

I think it is the auger brake. That definitely looks like the part. Anyone know where it is supposed to sit in relation to the auger pulley?

See part #6 in the image at the following link. That is definitely the culprit.

These illustrations from the shop manual might help:
