Question Can detent plate cause starter cut-off?

Have a 1963 T-Bird and even though the shifter is a bit "loose", it doesn't slip out of position at all. What it does do, is it is preventing the car from starting unless you hand-hold the shifter in a specific position - too far up or down, the car won't crank.

Is a worn detent plate to blame for this? Would replacing it solve the problem? If not, is there a way I can bypass this cutoff switch on the shifter so that I don't need to hold the shifter in position to start the car?
