Yes there is 3 place the gear is in for forward gear, and one for reverse.

Problem is even when i put it to first gear, i can manually slide the disc to the right side that means higher speed. It does this automatically when the engine runs.

When in gear, the friction disk should be making sufficient force against the friction plate that you wouldn't be able to move it by hand sideways. You have to find out why. Maybe it's getting hung up so you need to start disconnecting things. Try pushing things with your hands to see if something moves to apply the pressure.

Yes the friction disc cant be moved when engaged with the lever in let say gear nr 1 when the engine is not running.

When i start the engine and engage the disc it slides directly to the right and go for full speed. Even when the lever is in gear 1.

Dont know what parts could be missing? ��

The disk should be hard linked to the shifter via the arm that is visible in your photo - IE the shifter should alter the position of the disk, and if the shifter cannot move, the disk should not. Thus, follow the linkage between the disk and it's sliding mechanism and the shifter on the handlebars - there should me zero to minimal slop . . .

Is the wear on the rubber friction disk equal across or is one side of the rubber substantially more worn than the other side.

Do you know the model number so we can look at a parts drawing for how the shifter connects to the bellcrank we see?
