Your cable is defective and may be the problem. The end does screw into the ferrule which is swaged to the cable. You may try using a little loctite on the threads to hold it in. But to be safe you should replace the cable.

Did you turn the shift rod in the lower unit while you had it off? That can affect the shift adjustment. There is a specific dimension for the rod length that must be set to get proper shift adjustment. Don't remember the dimension but any good service manual will have it.
