Default Spark Advance and Throttle Levers very tight.

I could not even move these two levers at first.
I disconnected the rods from them under the hood. The rods themselves are free to move easily when not connected to the lower steering column.
I lubricated the levers where they go into the steering column with a penetrating oil. I can move them now but they are still very stiff in moving.
Is there a trick or another area to lubricate them that I'm not seeing?
Are these two levers supposed to be basically lose and their movement held by the serrations on the lower bracket and spring tension on the lower steering column? That seems to me how they should be.
