    Mates Assembly Not Working

      I'm supposed to do this. When I do the mate, the parts don't center and end up sitting a few inches away from each other. I pick, for example, the inner cylinder on #3 and the outer on #4. Instead of centering, they just sit separated. I try all the types of mates and still nothing.

      No matter what I do I can't get parts 3, 5, 6, 7, & 8 to mate properly. I can get part 5 in, but when I try to rotate the assembly in starts moving left and right. According to all the youtube videos I've seen, this should not be this difficult to do.  Is something wrong with the mating in this version or are my parts wrong?
