Gator 550 XUV popping out of gear

New user here,

Have a gator 550 XUV we use for work and i recently replaced the shift cable on it since it had snapped at the shift lever. Got it all installed and I'm having issues where the transmission keeps popping out of gear when driving it. I'm guessing it's from the cable not being adjusted properly but wondering if there is anything else I should keep an eye out for or any tips on how to adjust it properly with the 17mm nuts on the cables. Any suggestions would help! Thanks!

Alrighty I gotta clarify this a is in gear in High, Neutral and Reverse and drives just fine. However when in low, and its tricky to get it into low, gotta push the lever a bit harder, it pops out and makes that terrible grinding clunky noise. I'm thinking this is just a cable adjustment???

Hey, what was the problem? Just a cable adjustment or something else? Mine has started to pop of of high gear... goes in and out of gear fine (already addressed the clutch problem).
