Hello, new to this site, I have a Bobcat S-650 that feels as if the center/pivot point of the levers has moved, all hydraulics work good, steering, lifting, turning, but at rest position of the levers seem to have moved, can't push them very far forward to get any sort of speed at all, [ 2speed, acs controls ], now reverse is very very fast even in low speed mode, levers will move maybe 4 inches forward but at least 8 inches backward.
Is this an adjustment?, or bushing?, is it a big job to get at it to have a look?

Thanks in advance of any replies..............Steve

So I lifted the cab and looked, the two rods running from the lever pivots back to the actual hydraulic motors, they are adjustable, I shortened them up by loosening the 3/8 bolts and sliding them, the levers have the same amount of movement now forward and back, the machines forward speed is back to normal same with reverse, but I'm wondering why?, it had'nt moved where the rods are adjustable?, any thoughts, ideas on what happened?, where I should look?
