Hi Pierre, and yes.. is normal that the lever hits the pedestal guard, but if I were you, I go below, disconnect the cable from the transmission lever and engage it manually and make sure there it engages ok… if so, remove the binnacle in order to reach the cable assembly….   
On the other side, if the problem persist when engaging directly at the transmission, you have bigger problems..

It seems to me that the lever does not have enough travel in the forward direction thus the cable which eventually selects the gear may not pull far enough. The binnacle's tubing is in the way of the forward/reverse lever so I think I may need to adjust the cable below.
