When sliding part #6327028 down the left three rods as depicted in step 26, that piece becomes snug with the gray spacer piece from Step 25, but there’s a gap on the two left rods. The 1x5 black spacer (part #6327028) can’t remain level if brought to be snug with the black spacer piece, as depicted in Step 27. I’ve rebuilt the mechanism from the beginning with the same results. Either Lego forgot to have us add a spacer, or the illustration is wrong.
I’ve made the 1x5 black spacer (part #6327028) level from the gray spacer, but I’m wondering if the arm on the rod second from the left will be all right floating there. I can’t find anyone complaining about this issue online, but I do see complaints about the mechanism jamming, and here I am finding a problem with the mechanism.
If I threw in a gray spacer piece on the second rod from the left, that would ensure the arm is fastened snugly in place, but that 1x5 black spacer would still be off by half a brick according to the illustration. Suggestions?
(Thanks RSchulz for the assist!)
