Disregard the model but click on the troubleshooting link below and then see PDF page 117 or section 3-6 and let me know if this is the style you have. If so follow the same procedure.

I'm sorry but this isn't the same as mine. This 773 model appears to have a joy stick control and my 463 has two separate levers, one on each side that control forward and reverse on the loader. They also do the steering on my model. "H"

Thanks for the update. You want to replace any worn linkage to be sure to take any of the excessive play from the linkage. When you are adjusting these it is best to do it with the machines wheels off the ground so you can adjust to neutral when the wheels stop moving when centered.
