I would get a different one.   You could try driving the roll pin in from the front side to get your 1/8"  recess for the set screw, then file off the excess that may be hanging out the back.  Hard to tell but your dog point didn't look that great and it is supposed to have a jam nut (thin) not an extra thick one  that appears to be the case in your picture.

yeah it looks like a mess well I just tried to file down the roll pin and put back in and worked pretty good for a couple of minutes and then got all sloppy again and found out now that had ground off to much so guess its time to look for another shift stick

Paul is spot on with all he is telling you.  Take a roll pin punch and tap the roll pin in from the front to get 1/8" recess and file any from the back.  Try running a tap in the set screw hole.  I like to tighten the set screw into the shifter (snug) and back out 1/4 turn...hold with wrench while you tighten the lock nut.  If you think a new set screw would do it for you, PM me your address and I will send you one.  no charge  :)
