Just use pliers and bend it very slightly. Much easier to do if you take the assembly apart

Just got back to thus repair this morning.  I followed your advice and disassembled the smoke unit to get to that "arm".  It was easier to bend but unfortunately my chuffing woes continue.  At first I continued to get  intermittent chuffing both forward and reverse but  I'm beginning to think the problem may reside with the on/off chuff switch because I turned it off and the unit continued intermittently chuffing.  After a while it stopped.  I then turned the switch back to the on position and received no chuffing whatsoever in either forward and reverse.  So, currently the chuffing is totally non-functional.  All other sounds work beautifully and the engine smokes up a storm.  At something of a loss here because I'm leary of getting into the wiring for the on/off switch.  I've checked visually and can't see any breaks or worn wires.  Anyone else have any additional guidance.  Help would be appreciated because I would like to get the chuffing sound back.
