Shift Cable Adjustment in a '75 C10 4x4?

Hi all. I have a 1975 C10 4x4 and it's an automatic. The problem I'm having is that the shifter on the column moves up and down just fine, but when I put it in park, the transmission is not in park. I can shift it just fine and it shifts fine on it's own when I drive it, but when I park it, I have to put a block under the tire in order for it not to roll away.

Connected to the steering rod, I see a lever that comes off of it with 1 nut attached to it, which I'm assuming controls the adjustment of the column shifter. My friend told me that I need to loosen that nut and adjust it in order to enable it to go into park. Can anyone on here tell me if this is the right way to go about it? Thanks!

from what i can remember, that should be a linkage rod? but if there is a cable that would be th way. just out of curiosity when your driving does it shift 1 or 2 times , the only reason that i ask is that to me it sounds like the park gear has been thrashed otherwise your driving in 2nd gear instead of drive?
