Was it you who mentioned in another thread that you thought the ram shaft was slightly bent? Could be that it is, and loctiting the ram down got rid of the bit of play the ram had to allow it to move freely.
i thought the cocking rod was slightly bent, but i think its all ok now, the ram doesnt go in and out as smoothly, but i dont think its enough to effect anything.
thanks for help guys.
