I don’t.  I did look up the adjustment procedure in an old “Motor Manual” I have and also emailed a friend here who has a ’57 TPC.  The adjustment procedure appears to be somewhat complicated and may require a special tool or two.  I would be happy to copy those pages from the manual and send them to you if you think they would be helpful.  I did have a ’58 Edsel years ago with the push buttons in the middle of the steering wheel.  That system was not the same as the Merc.  It was electrical and worked quite well when adjusted properly.  It did not have the “start” button located on the neutral button but used the key to activate the starter as in most cars.  I think the starter circuitry can be a bit of a problem.
