no help on 'easier in draft than position'. The shaft with touch control lever and friction disk passes thru the tube attached to quadrant. There have been cases where rust builds up between the shaft & tube and binding results. If that is your problem, you can remove touch control lever & friction disk from shaft, then remove quadrant, leaving shaft inside the top cover (it won't come out from the outside) and clean up rust on shaft & inside tube.
