W115 200 column change manual transmission linkage adjustment

Hey guys changed the bushings on the end of the rods and the sockets at the beginning of the rods and the car shifts nicely but binds in reverse at times and you have to open the hood and manually push the lever. The column shifter will just stay in reverse and won't budge but does feel like it has play when that happens.

Tried adjusting by "eye" but had no success. I can't find the documentation on the service CD and have no idea what's going on with it at this point.

Anyone has any experience with this?

I don't have your answers but I will be interested in what is learned here. I have found column shifters to be conundrums.
