I have been told of ones like yours, which were presumed to be fitted to very late cars.
I nipped up the adjuster by one flat (60 degrees) and a tight spot appeared, not at full lock but at 1/4 to 1/2 turn left of the steering wheel and nowhere else. Gradually winding back the adjuster removed the high spot and its back to its original setting.......
