Assembly FEA doesnt solve

Hello,

Im having an issue running an FEA on an assembly. I have mated all my parts to a bulkhead and used bolt connections on the the appropriate edges (I've also tried using rigid connections between the bolt faces). I have also applied fixed geometry to the cylindrical ferrules, and remote loads to suspension mounts. The assembly can mesh, but once it starts the solver, it sits at 0% and doesnt do anything. I have left the simulation running for over an hour with no change to the progress bar. Does anyone know what i am doing wrong?
