The bolts on the shifter lever and weldments attached to the steering column from time to time do develop play, as the holes get bigger and the bolts get smaller, I have seen it many times.

Buy specialized bolts with bigger  diameter body, at a bolt store, or go from metric to standard and see if it fits tighter.

There are machined bolts that have a nice thick body available.

But if the steering column (uprights) shifter weldments are too worn out and oval shaped, then you may have to cut them off and re weld new eyelets, also check the condition on the shifter lever weldments, by completely removing the shift lever, check them both, you’d be surprised.
