John Deere 318 starting in reverse

I have a 1985 John Deere 318 that I recently had to replace the spring on the hydro lever on. Since doing that it seems to want to take off backwards when starting. We have 4- 318's and a 200 so luckily I have a back up, but I really need help figuring out my 85. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

You might have to walk yourself backwards through that process of changing that spring. Something flipped? I've not put one on. What was the part number?

RE: John Deere 318 starting in reverse

I'm not sure of the part number. It's under the dash and connects to the shift linkage. We just robbed the part from a parts tractor. I know our 92 doesn't have the same type linkage set up. We have an 87 and 88 also but the 92 was tore down so we could see that linkage.
