1968 230 (W114) Manual Trans Shift Lever adjustment

Hi, I do have a problem to adjust the shift lever mechanism of a W114, is there someone that chan share the procedure to adjust such mechanism.
What is doing it goes in to reverse with no problem, then trying to go to 1st gear is where the problem starts, then you can go to 2nd, 3rd and 4rd, but if you miss 1st then it is when you have a problem, I see the that the 1st and 2nd location is very close to the panel, also the 3rd you can touch the instrument panel, that is why I think that there is an addjusment problem.
FYI, the whishbones were replaced and there is why the mechanism was missadjusted.
Any help will be appreciated.
