Thought I would put a bow on this. Rejigged the linkage, starting from the factory settings with the guide pin in and worked from there. Transmission still slipped but not as bad. I then did a trial and error doing 1/2 turns on the kickdown linkage until I had the kickdown working, Finally had it up on a hoist and got a transmission guy to do a final tweak, he had to adjust and tighten it at the transmission and now it shifts solid, no more slippage and goes into every gear. Over the winter amongst other things I will replace the detent and rebuild the power steering which has a slight leak. Hardened seals I think.
