How do you rotate the lever in toad town caves?
You just have to go talk to toad, and then you have to go through the yellow tube (the one that isn't blocked by signs) and find that thing in the ground that shoots upward. Use it as a whirlwind and go up into the clouds. There you will find three patroopas and they will teach you how to use a shell. Then go back to toad town caves to talk to toad. There will be a shell block, so hit it. By using Luigi's hammer you can turn Mario into a shell and hit him to turn the lever.
