I appreciate the feedback. Thank you! The vertical rod was longer on the left side, so we lengthened the right side. The reason we lengthened the right side, was because there was a bolt hitting the frame. Hard to explain, but by lengthening the right side, the bolt cleared. Now they r close to the same length. We have some wheat left before I get it back to the shop to look at it again. The left side is completely locked up. Doesn't go up or down. When I had the shield off on top, we didn't notice any binding where the rigid rod/flex rod goes for lock and unlock. If anyone has any more ideas let me know. Otherwise when I look at it again I will post what I find out.
