If you have a tractor with a (Foot Feet), as we would say as a kid,
you need to make sure it comes all the way back up. If it does not, take
it apart, clean with a rag, Please don't clean with WD 40, pull on the
spring to make it just a little longer. The pedal must come all the way up
to start in 1st speed.

I'll chime in here for the first time - I have W.H. C-185
and had a similar
problem (which I think is back) and the problem was a
switch in the drive motor - when the motor hits a
certain rpm the switch
kicks in and jumps it up to the next speed. Hope

If I hit the cruise button, it jumps up to normal speed.
seems to behave this way more as John says, going uphill.
