342 Lionel Culvert loader

I recently acquired this accessory and having  issues with getting it to work properly.  It was filthy, so I disassembled, cleaned it up and reassembled it.

 I spent allot of time in getting the hook to work correctly, where issues seem to be around old lubricant in the hook mechanism gummed up, and caused it to stick.

Now I am having issues keeping the culverts on the platform before they are picked up, as they seem vibrate off. It seems to get worse when there are only a few on the platform.   Is this just how this accessory is or can this be tuned?  Video below shows this.  

I have read notes on tweaking the metal base by bending it slightly between the track and building to change the level.  Wondering about other’s experiences with it....
