Orange plate is supposed to be welded solid / rigid to the chassis. From the schematic for your model the whole drive plate moves towards the friction wheel, movement is made through the drive spindle housing. These can rust up from sitting, but there are two bearings in there that can go bad. Please note that they are LEFT handed threads on this assembly, and pay CAREFUL attention to washers and spacers, if assembled incorrectly shaft will bind or lock up when you tighten final assembly.
Put machine in service position, drop lower pan plate, move left handle for drive engagement and see what moves. It should be the drive plate moving towards the friction wheel when lever is pulled.

Keep us posted on your progress.
