MY6 hurst shifter problems

I have an a833/np440/my6 transmission and shifter from a van in my 68. I had to modify the lever because it wanted to be inside the dash in it's original shape. When I assembled it all together on a bench it seemed to shift pretty good but now that it's in the truck I sometimes have trouble getting into the 1-2 slot, especially after downshifting from 3rd or 4th. It usually just takes a minute or so of wiggling around to get it in but I was wondering if there was an adjustment I need to make to help it out. I'm not a transmission guru so any advice will be appreciated.

You need to align the gates.
Like in this vid.

Your shifter is likely similar. You can use a 1/4 inch drill bit if you need to in the alignment hole.
