Pull the hoses off your ram, unthread ram with pump arm attached, tweak the rod over just a smidge by hand. Reinstall ram and back block, check for alignment. If still off repeat. If good reinstall hoses and assemble the back end.

That's what I was going to say. It can probably be gently bent back straight.

yea, trilogies are pretty much bullet proof. cocking rods tend to come unscrewed easily anyway. put a dab of superglue or blue loctite on it to stop it from happening. youll still be able to get it off with your fingers, it just wont rattle loose.

and i still dont think the ram shaft is bent.

Maybe you didnt notice the last picture where the pump arm is correct and still pulled away from the body on the back? Whole lot easier to bend a ram shaft than a pump arm.. A straight and true ram shaft and pump arm should sit amlost touching the body, that gap is too large.

Telling an inexperienced person to put superglue on threads and bending exceptionally delicate parts is pretty rough.

I hope none of you guys actually fix markers in the real world... because you're doing it wrong.

OP, if your can cycle the pump arm easily, and the ram doesn't feel gritty or anything that's not smooth, you'll want to bend the pump arm, and not the ram. Spend however long you need to figure out where you should bend it, and aim for the places where the kinks already exist. I would start at the kink closest to the back block. Take the ram and pump arm off the gun first, or you're only going to wreck your ram even more.

If the ram is gritty, which it probably is, that means the ram shaft itself is bent. I'm surprised it even cycled at all flipped around like that, you should look into getting a new ram and pump arm. You could have both of those parts replaced for about $25 shipped.

Lets see, I am THE last race gun tech in the US. Ive unbent plenty of ram shafts as well. You want to play a battle of wits, you better bring your A game.
Ive serviced and teched more race cockers than I can count.
Have you ever tried to bend a pump arm? It is 100x easier to unbend the ram shaft. Using the pump arm as leverage it would be easy to tweek it back the 1/8" that its bent out.
You could just replace the ram which solves the whole issue.
