Circular motion

Hi.

I assembled an Izod machine (to make the simulation faster I suppressed most of the parts and leave only the parts for the Circular motion) and I'm trying to simulate it.
I chose the gravity simulation ( all the mates are fine-beacuse when I move the Pendulum it moves in the right directions-in Circular motion)
BUT when I try to simulate it, the Pendulum stops after it passes the lower point instead of continue to the same Height it began (as it should accroding to the Potential energy)
even the velocity is the same along the simulation (and it shouldn't be)

can someone please help to figure it out.

Thanks.
