odds are that when you put the PRNDL switch back on the manual arm shaft that you broke the internal tabs that hold it on the shaft tight. when i r&r any of the late model 4l60e's with these switches, i always file the edge of the manual arm shaft that the switch slides over so that it doesnt do that.
what happens is when the manual arm nut is tightened down it swells the shaft that the switch has to slide over and when you try and put it on, it breaks the holding ends inside the switch and will rock on the shaft and be out of adjustment all the time.
file the manual arm shaft at the edge where the arm sits at when tight on both sides and get where the new switch will go on without much effort.
