WELCOME! Not sure exactly what your video was supposed to show... If the lever moves too easily, there is a friction adjustment for that. Here's a link to the Service Manual that covers the 129. Starting on page 78 (page 2-55 of the actual document) of the linked file is where the information on the hydro control starts. Please note that there was a change to this so make sure to refer to the section that pertains to the serial number of your 129.

Your video didn't show detail around the trunion slot, that's the slot where the spring is. That slot wears out and can cause issues with the hydro control. If it's worn it can be welded up. Here's a link to the FAQ on how to repair the trunion.

My 149 had same problem. The welding around the springs idea worked. I also found much wear on all of the moving parts. All parts are available from the advertisers on this site. Not all that expensive either.
