John,

I replaced the detent plate, the shift lever (and pin), and the collar. The shift lever was badly rounded, and the holes in the collar for the pin were enlarged, which made the lever "floppy".

With all those new, square, tight-fitting parts, I just wasn't sure how it should feel. The spring is still very stiff and returns the shift lever to the back, but I just have to be careful to make sure it lands in the P notch, to the point of having to help it get there. I'm not having to force it there or anything, but just sort of gently guide it where it needs/wants to go.

Thanks.

Scott
