I am making a new mod and want to open a lid with a hydraulic ram. I cannot get the rod to translate in the right axis.

Can you help with the rules for making this work. See pic of the setup

This is what it is doing!

The piston will not position or translate correctly

Any ideas?

This is the XML code:

<movingTool index="0>8"/>

<movingTool index="0>24">
<controls axis="AXIS_FRONTLOADER_ARM" iconFilename="$dataS2/menu/moveControls/topDoor.png" invertAxis="true" invertMouseAxis="true" speedFactor="0.3"/>
<rotation rotSpeed="45" rotAcceleration="280" rotMax="40" rotMin="6" rotationAxis="3"/>
<dependentPart index="0>25"/>
<movingPart index="0>25" referencePoint="0>24|0" referenceFrame="0>24|0">
<translatingPart index="0>25|0|0"/>

Here are pictures of the GE file

start with making sure the model is correctly setup on child / parent and its axis and O-point. That's the main reason this happens
