The 727 in my charger seems to have some play in it is there a way to adjust the rod mounted to the transmission and get that play out. I recently changed the rooster comb and not sure if that changed anything.
Have someone shift it and watch were the play is.
If the hole in the transmission lever is worn, a small flat washer can be welded on to shrink the hole size. If excessive up and down clearance exists, shimming will help. A visual inspection will confirm issues as pointed out in #2 above.
I had someone in the car on the lift and I looked through the neutral safety switch hole and it lines up perfectly im just gonna live without them. Two years working on this car and its the only thing that doesn't work are the reverse lights
