Delta Model 10, Serious pointer problem

I recently bought an older Delta Model 10 Contractor saw at an auction, I never learn. It wasn't until I got it home that I noticed that tilt degree pointer was inside the case/base. I have pulled it apart to clean it up and find that it is not simply a case of bending the pointer back. I noticed that the hold down knob on the blade elevation wheel is missing, that makes me wonder if the shaft from another model was used. I would like an opinion before I start trying to pull the shaft back where it would place the pointer outside of the base.

I am adding a couple of attachments to show the location of the shaft, a large screwdriver just fits between the shaft and the casting. I just looked at that picture again and noticed a set screw, maybe I had better look into that. The other picture is an "over all".

Model 10 didn't help me much. Is this a Unisaw or Contractors saw. Newer or older. If it is at least 20 years old the OWWM.com site could help you with a manual. Clean and lube, but DON'T PRY ON CAST IRON, especially if is newer import.

The Model 10 is the "contractor's saw". I solved the problem. When I looked at the pictures I posted I saw what looked like a set screw I hadn't noticed when looking at it in real life. I pulled up a parts diagram from Toolsdirect.com and it showed a set screw. After drawing out the screw I gave it a tap the sleeve wth the pointer came right out. Can't figure how the pointer managed to get inside the case.
