Steve - it appears to be a pin that's used only for analog rigs with a dial
This makes sense, as the instructions say:
29. On analog rigs -- turn tuning shaft fully CCW. Install pin in shaft and
reinstall dial cord.
I think I just need to persuade the pin to go about 1 mm further and it
should be strong enough for an anchor point for the dial cord. I expect any
questions will be answered by the dial cord kit instructions -- that project
will start as soon as I button up the PTO.
