1972 shifter adjustment

I'm a VW tech in Windsor Ontario whose been charged with doing work on a customers 72 914 1.7l. the car came in with a sloppy shifter, that had worn out busings as well as missing parts. After rebuilding the whole assembly(in car and underneath) and locating neutral on the transmission, I've got some of the gears, but not all. With time costing money and me trying to keep his costs reasonable, what is the correct procedure to adjust the linkage. A Porsche Tech at Pfaff Porsche got me in the ball park, but I want it closer. Reverse is a definite as well as 2nd and 4th. She grinds going into 1st and 5th gear feels almost nonexistent. Any help would be appreciated
