Hi, I recently got a Hoover Convertible 33 on eBay, and something isnít right with the height adjustment, when I move the lever, it does absolutely nothing. There is nothing connecting the lever, to the axle. If anybody has a Hoover 31-34 could you please post some close up photos of the height adjustment on the bottom.

early Convertibles

These are one of the great MCM vacs.They started with just a 2 position adjuster.To set for high--leave handle standing up,push rear of vac down,move lever to have 'hook'under the axle raising front nozzle,lower handle,turn on and Beat,Sweep & Clean.As new types of carpet became popular in 60s the easier to use 4 position adjuster was added.
Happy Hoovering!

Thank you, I have a 1070 with the newer 4 position height adjuster, and was thinking with the 33 that I should just move the lever... but clearly not.
