Jauch Triple Chime - chime selector is slipping...

A recent clock purchase has a Jauch movement with triple chime. I know jauch is not a great movement. However, it cleaned up nicely and is keeping great time.
The problem is that the chime selector is slipping. Since I do not know the technical terms for the parts, I'll try to describe it as best as I can.
The problem is not where the screws tighten onto the main shaft. At each end there is an arm, in front the arm connects to the selector, at the back is an arm that moves the chime in and out. It appears there is some sort of pressure fitting holding these two arm. Is there anyway to tighten the pressure fitting where the selector arm and chime selector arm connect to the main shaft?
