Shift Linkage Issue on 1992 F150

Okay, this is my son's truck. It's a '92 F150, auto trans, step side. Whenever he puts it in gear from Park everything seems fine but when he goes to put it back in Park the column shifter goes all the way to the left but not far enough to reach the Park gear on the trans. It seems like his linkage is slipping somewhere. We did get under the truck and everything at the trans looks fine. Nothing loose and nothing stripped. You can simply, manually put it in Park and you're good to go. I've never seen a shifter issue at the column but couild this be it? We tried accessing the linkage at the column but couldn't get to it. Does the steering wheel have to be reomved? Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated.

A common problem is the shift tube & plunger in the steering column. If you take off the plastic shroud around the column you should be able to inspect it-it's the part the shift handle hooks into.

Ok, so we're able to inspect the tube and plunger but everything looks normal. What should we be looking for? We've inspected the cable and all the linkage and everything looks normal but it refuses to go into Park. Like I said in the first post - we can easily put it onto Park manually, but that's the only way. Any help is appreciated.
