Make a mark on the adjustment disk near the gear leaver tower so you can always go back to what you currently have.

Put it in neutral.
Loosen the bolts.
Hold the gearbox side of the disc still.
Get someone to hold the gear lever all the way to right (looking forward from the back of the vehicle) in the neutral line.
Tighten the bolts.

Try that.

If that doesn't work, then watch the rod movement at the gearbox tower when it is put in Krawler. Leave the system in krawler and disconnect the bolts completely. The gear lever should jump back to neutral if the spring is working.
See if stays in Krawler.
Then you will know if it is a problem deeper in the gearbox or just an adjustment issue.
