Wont go into park?

Hey guys i got a new netural saftey switch for a 66 mustang ive been working on. Installed it and have had some issues that hopefully are easy fixes. One the middle bolt came out and it wasn't a bolt at all? Not to sure but wont tighten up like it seemed to be when i started. And know after all that the car wont go back into park? Any help would be great. It has a stright six and i would say the tranny would be a c4, its an automatic. Thanks guys

If this is the type at the bottom of the column you may not have it positioned properly

sounds like the rod for the TV linkage is what you pulled out. that should not pull out much since there is a linkage piece on the inside end. that end moves a valve inside the valve body

they are known to break off and fall , not common , but it happens
