lathe chuck jaw simulation

I need some help on a Simulation task that I am working on.



My design involves a Lathe chuck jaws that are opening and closing in an assembly, as they open and close they all move simultaneously and stay in a parallel situation.



My design and the top jaw and the mechanism part (These two have been assembled), the mechanism is held in the chuck by means of a tapered slot.


The part will have to be fixed on the tapered part (not sure where), load on the front part of the jaw (where the jaw will hold the part), the blots (that are holding the jaw to the mechanism will need bolt connectors added (not sure how to do this either) and finally, the jaw and mechanism will need to show that there is fricition occuring between the jaw and mechanism.



Can anyone please show me how to run this simulation in Solidwork?










P.s. I have attached the Assembly so hopefully you can understand the problem.
