Using the lower hole in your pic should gain you some lift height.
Thanks Sam. I will give that a try

First, it appears that there should be a bushing where the long lift connecting arm connects to the lift mechanism. There is not one presently and the connection is really sloppy. Is there some sort of bushing i should track down?

I think there should be a bushing in there (Parts Catalog shows something, not clear what.) It also looks like yours has a bushing of some sort already. (Maybe just a wear pattern makes it look that way.) If so, you could look at replacing it with one that is a tighter fit at the inside of the bushing. Moving to the other hole as SamsFarm indicated is what i was trying to suggest earlier.

Like if it was overloaded!
I have a super A and one is twisted on it.
Being twisted would change the index point.
If you push both touch control levers forward and look at the 3 rock shaft arms on the touch control, they should line up evenly.
I cant remember if those rockshaft arms on the touch control are keyed. If keyed, maybe a key sheared at some time in the past

On the top is a short collar, and below the swivel link is a longer collar.
You might try swapping the collars and then screwing in your left side adjuster link to level the cross bar!
