Speed related question on old 826

Anyone have experience with an 826 similar to the one in the pics?
Does first gear seem to be too fast ? I saw a you tube vid where they had to goose the clutch due to 1st gear still being too fast for conditions.
For me too slow is much better than too fast.

Thanks !

"SR" he crawls in first gear. a turtle moves faster than him. look down on the shift linkage they might have it jacked up.

It's a moot point now, it sold in 2 hours.

I've just came into possession of a similar model. Is there a service manual available anywhere. Both left and right clutch stuff is gone except I have one outside red collar thing. I was hoping that maybe I could fix at least one side.
