I have a hydraulic cylinder subassembly ( with a limit distance mate) in a higher level assembly. I have anchored one end of the cylinder with a concentric mate to a locating pin.  I  have made the subassembly flexible. I want to make a concentric mate with the other locating pin. When I try to set the mate I get the "The default mate type (concentric) would over-define the assembly. Please select the mate type below". The cylinder is free to rotate about the fixed end, and the pin I would like to mate to is within the limit distance mate of the cylinder assembly. the head gear assembly is not flexible.  Please see attached. Shouldn't this work?
