Simple support cylindrical face

Hi all, I have created a longboard with two trucks for the wheels. Wish to run a quick simulation on it as a simple supported beam (like in the pic); a fixed hinge on the left side, and a roller/slider on the right.


Fixed hinge is working fine, but I'm having some trouble with the other support. "On cylindrical faces" will constrain the cylindrical face in the horizontal direction too, and I don't want that! Also, I tried using reference geometry, but it seems it constrains my geometry in the rotation also (see simulation picture).


Is there any tips/tricks on how to set up this cylindrical face as a hinged roller? Thanks!


btw: the trucks are rigid
