I have been lazy in not updating this website for quite a while. I have been engaged in many othe (unfinished) projects.

Emgee (nom de plume, you may have heard of him already) helped me a great deal on this problem as he had provided all the engineering and much of the the thought to solving the issue of the fast dropping lift already documented. Through a process of elimination and several components we concluded the pin that pushes the release valve was off centre by a millimeter. Emgee mas a new shaft and pin with the offset and it solved the resistance to the pin going in and out. However it was not until I also dropped a ball bearing into the top opening that operates the valve that eventually cured the problem!
