th350 shifter adjustmen on a 69 camaro

ok I won a new horseshoe shifter as they are called and hooked it all up .
I set the car in drive (actual. not as indicated on the shifter.)
I disconnected the linkage at the tranny.
set the shifter in the drive position
loosened the linkage bracket on the tranny pan.
hooked up the linkage and tightened it down.
now i get park-reverse-neutral-drive- 2nd
the shifter goes back a bit more but wont catch first?
i hit the stop before it engages first.

The last couple aftermarket auto shifters I had, instructed the installer to set them up in first and make sure the rest worked after that.

Those were both Hurst parts and the rest of the manufacturers might have differring methods for the same result.

I believe dawg received an answer over on a Camaro board.... ?

It does sound like a detent shifter problem
Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.
