Need Reassembly Advice

My dad always says if you pay attention to how it comes apart you should be able to put it back together. I obviously missed something last night...

I dropped the valve body in my C4 to replace the seal on the selector shaft as it was leaking there. Put it back together and now have no detent other that park to reverse which is in the column. The shift lever will just glide thru R-N-D-2-1. I'm sure I missed something on the detent spring and rooster comb, probably the kickdown too. Trans will go into all gears- just no 'click' to let you know where you're at.

What's the method for lining all this up while lying on your back with TypeF oozing down your arms and into your hair?
Thanks in advance!

Re: Need Reassembly Advice

Seems that most of what I need to know is in FE's reply to Hot Rod Ranger in his C4 post. Once again FE is there before I knew I needed him. I'll crawl under there tonight and figure it out.
