Honda HS-55 TA: Gear Issues


I own an old Honda HS55 TA snowblower. Great little machine, and it has performed well up here in the northeast. However, I am starting to have gear issues. 3rd gear and reverse seem to engage fine when I squeeze the drive level, however 1st or 2nd gear do not want to work. Sometimes, if I put the gear level into 1st or 2nd, and then move to the right, and then back to the left, it will engage. I've also found that if I put it into 1st or 2nd, and then push against what appears to be some type of control level under the control panel (actually looks like 2 levers connected with a spring), the snowblower will move. I am sure that my description is not doing this justice, but it seems strange that 3rd and reverse both work, while 1st and 2nd do not. Thanks in advance for your assistance.
