Detent retaining pin problem

After installing a shift kit in my TH350, the detent retaining pin is now contacting the oil plate and will not fully push into place.

Just because the vehicle isn't on the road, I checked the motion of the detent and figured the pin wouldn't pop out...but now I have to go back inside anyways and I'm wondering how to approach this?

Can I just cut this retaining pin down some where it hits the oil plate? Makes sense to me, just wanted to check with someone who may have encountered this previously.

If the pin doesn't go in far enough to lock in place, you must have something wrong. I don't remember ever having one that would not lock in, when installed properly.

well the bracket that slides onto the cable itself only goes on one way...technically you could put it on upside down, but you wouldn't be able to slide the pin through to fasten it.

I'm pretty confident I've got the detent hooked up right...the problem is the pin won't slide in all of the way into the gap that locks it down because the edge of the pin contacts the oil plate (which is probably 1/4" thicker since I added all of the B&M crap)

If I took the B&M add-ins out, the pin would fit in perfectly.

if I cut off the edge of the pin, I could get it to slide all the way into the gap without interfering with the oil plate...and all would be cool.

Think I'll grind it down tomorrow, it's such a miniscual amount.
