Maybe yours is sticking, and moves when it wants. I keep spares.
As for shifting, I attended a Waterous pump class, they said to shift it all the way don't hesitate. A Hale manual I read also said the same.
The center position, as donethat said, releases the air pressure from the shift cylinders. That allows a manual pump engagement.
I haven't had to try that yet, but lever is there.
But everyone has their own way.
