How is it attached now/originally? Might have some missing/worn parts.

Hit the GM dealer for an exploded view of the linkage to see what you might be missing or is damaged. Order new GM parts as required.

I am not sure how it was mounted the first time?
Right now it is mounted to the sterring shaft with a bolt and nut ant the rod from the transmission slips though a small hole with a rubber boot in it this is all that holds it on the shaft. it shifts through the gears fine but when you put in park this boot slips off the top

Assume it's done wrong and been messed with until you get the dealer's printout from the microfiche (too old to be on a parts computer).

Now tell us what's missing/worn with the printout ahead of you. A GM service manual is also a recommended item .
