Taking it to get the lever re-installed. It's on backwards.
I just took off the shift knob and pulled down the rubber boot and sure enough.
The lever bend/kink is bending the opposite direction.
I'll post back tomorrow after it get fixed.
Another way to confirm - look at Castel picture of the SSK lever above, on the side in permanent marker it has the date of manufacture. if the lever is installed correctly, the date can be read on the driver side. On my lever, the date it read on the passenger side.
