Default 63 Need help with column/ turn signal

I removed the turn signal housing to replace the switch on my 63 chevy II.
I put the new one altogether on the bench in one assembly. Turn lever and all.
went to put it back on and its not seating properly. I originally loosened the 2 nuts under dash and dropped the column as I took it apart and;1
#1 the shift lever seems frozen when I tighten the 2 bolts for column. Isnt the tab under the dash suppose to line up in the hole of the column? (see pic) as it seems to shift ok when the column housing isn't tighten with this tab in the hole.
#2 what holds the turn lever housing solid and keeps it from moving when the turn lever is moved up and down? I haven't even got to this point as the turn housing does not seat. and also, one of the 3 screws that hold the turn switch in is longer than the other 2 does that matter where it goes (se pic)
I took pics takin it all apart and thought it would be easy to go back together!

Does the tabs on the column fit into the tabs on the turn signal housing and then turn to lock on? (pictures)
Do I need to put this together not as a assembled unit..... but one piece at time?

I believe I got it. You cannot preassemble the turn signal housing then install it on the column.
