JD 212 Mowing Deck

William Ade I just purchased a 1983 John Deere 212 Lawn & Garden Tractor. This is my first John Deere. Before buying I took two test rides on the tractor, and everything worked as it should. I got it home and took my first run cutting some brush. After a few passes I noticed the after raising the mowing deck it would not stay locked in the fully raised position. I took the deck off, cleaned it, and reassembled it. Again, I pulled the lever back and locked it into position. It held for a few seconds, and then dropped the deck down. Any ideas what the problem could be?
