Thanks Eric but Greg actually put it together for me. I took it apart and everything seemed tight.
tolerances, 2 pieces made by 2 different manufactures not engineered to be used together, use at your own risk....i had to change my gimbal fork as well

Both Pro & XCS make the best components in our industry, but the sad reality is that compromises must be made everywhere in life. Seeing as the spindle is the Jesus Nut of our entire being as Steadicam OPs, why mess with it? This is probably the single most critical tolerance on the entire sled. Beyond 3/1000's ???? Simply the type of anodizing can be enough of a variable to throw off the tolerance of the mating of the spindle into the yolk, even if they are machined to the exact same dimensions.
Unfortunately when you mix components to this degree, you really leave yourself no re-course for yourself or either manufacturer to be able to resolve any issues.
Theory is one thing.... reality another.
