Mate error, even when mate IS working.

Hi people, thanks in advance for reading my message.


I have attached pictures of an assembly where everytime I rebuild I get a message telling me that one of mates in a sub-assembly cannot be satisfied. What I don't understand is it IS satisfied. The distance 1-9/16" from the pin center to the cup surface is always kept regardless of how I move the piston. What could be causing this problem?


Also, you will notice that the spring does not compress as it is supposed to. In the subassembly it belongs in, the height of the tip of the helix is coincident with the interior surface of the cup, so when the cup moves out or in it changes the compression of the spring just fine. However when I bring that assembly within another assembly that relationship seems to not exist anymore. What's wrong here?
