The arm with the notches in the dial definitely lock and unlock the beaters n etc. I was told and do guess those notches are settings for the beaters. The arm with the dial that only has two notches definitely locks and unlocks the apron. They look original or at least off the same spare parted machine and replaced at the same time. I can see nothing to indicate there were different dials

Somebody has switched the quadrant (Dials) then as the apron is supposed to be the multiple notches and it cannot work as should with only 2 notches, that way you only have full speed that is only supposed to be used to do a final cleanout of bed after you shut beaters off because they will keep when it gets to end rooling the manure back to keep the bed from ever getting empty. With a heavy manure load you start out the web in slowest speed, a lite load you can start out in medium speed. And final cleanout fastest speed. And if you try to slow beaters then it puts too much load on them to break things. I have opened my email on classic, don't know if it will be open on modern. I do not have a parts book for that spreader and it is too old to still be on Merssicks site to get it so I cannot see how things are supposed to be bolted together but I do know the beaters are only supposed to be 2 notches, one off and the second running. And on all the ground drive spreaders I have seen and that is quite a few the lever that puts the beaters in gear just drops a chain down on a big sprocket on the axle and that chain can only work if it is fully meshed up with the teeth on the sprocket. Sounds like when it was assembled the left piece was switched with the right piece to get what you have. I do know something is not put together corectly from what you are saying.
