I know that the factory manual gives the correct
shop procedure but not many of us have calibrated shifter weights in the tool box. You can get it close enough by trial and error - that's how I did mine when I did the V8/auto swap.
It makes sense that the adjustment will get looser as the cable stretches over time. So you will probably need to tighten it a notch or 3. IIRC, the cable goes tightest when pulled to 1st gear.
Before you adjust anything, be sure to check the bolts that hold the adjuster bracket to the trans. If they are loose, the adjustment will keep changing.
