The shifter i have actually works but I think the detent spacing may have been hand created and may be just a little off between r-n-d (+/-) causing the tranny heavy wear because the shift lever on the tranny isn't exact. I could fix it if I knew the exact oem shifter detent spacing. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Chris.

Just the bottom set of detents are being used.

The only real way to find out would be to measure the ratio of a stock shifter movement, then check it against yours. I don't have a spare, so I can't help you there. However, it would probably be best to start with a stock shifter and see if you couldn't build an indent system into it.

I wonder if I could determine if the shift lever is in the correct position by watching a pressure gauge connected to the "main pressure" checkpoint on the tranny?

You might check with this guy:

You might be able to pick up a shifter, then you could do a comparison.
