Please answer this one!

trying to replace detent cable on chevy 350/thm350.connected the bottom cable end to the transmission link, but the link is stuck in the up position!? how do i get the metal link end to retract back down into the valve body to secure the cable onto the transmission???

here is the link rod that wont go back down in its hole! (GO HOME LITTLE LINK ROD…GO HOME TO YOUR LITTLE HOLE…WHAT…ARE YOU TOO GOOD FOR YOUR HOME NOW???)
please excuse my happy gilmore impression.
