There does appear to be something wrong in your assembly.
Should only require 3 of 1/4" ID washers and 1 of 3/16" ID washer.
Plate on gear shift lever should be drilled out so that the 1/4" dia shoulder bolt can slide right through the plate.
If this has been done then check that the length of the shoulder bolt shoulder is 5/8".
Assembly is 1/4" washer under shoulder bolt head, then through the cable rod end, another 1/4" washer, then through the gear lever plate, another 1/4" washer and a 3/16" washer, then nyloc nut.
Installation instructions are in a PDF on this page:
