What I've done in the past is to bend down the tab in the back end of the
shift tube so that it no longer locates the shift connector.  I place the
transmission in reverse, then have someone locate the shifter so that is
in the reverse position, but not against the edge of the housing.  I then
clamp the shift connector and the tube together using the clamp only.
