Lightbulb addition to detent plate replacement

I have another addition I would like you to make to the website. With regards to Alexanders directions on replacing the detent plate (by the way, they are very helpful). I replaced my plate and still had to lift up on my lever to start the car, not as bad as before though. The lever is very tight now and holds very well. Richard recommended adjusting the neutral safety switch on the underside of the steering column. There were two screws to remove and then you slide it one way or the other until you can start it without lifting on the lever. Worked perfectly for me. I think this would be a helpful addition for all to know about and have it all in one location for the next guy (yikes...or gal, sorry Coral!) that has to do this. Thanks old great one!
