Hi All

Old 1997 Rover Easy Start - still going well & maintained.

Height control lever sporadically (each 30 minutes or so) slips out of position into a lower height level.

Any easy suggestions ? (Can post photos when I'm next on duty)

What would the cause be ? .... old age, sloping grass, etc

It is usually the height adjuster arm, they are made of spring steel and either start to crack or just bend and don't hold the pressure against the rack as well. it is worth pulling it off and seeing if it just needs a straighten to hold it better

I fixed my neighbours, same problem.
A piece of wire 60cm ,wrap around handle , set at height you want, and tie it off at opposite handle.... it works.
speedy
