Readjust the stops on the shifter and retest. And there also is a bushing in the trans that the ball of the shifter goes into that might need a looking at also.

I had the same issue with a MAC shifter quite a few years back. It wouldn't stay in 2nd gear, kept popping out. I put the stock shifter back in and never had a problem after that!
