Default Freud 3000 issue

I was raising this thing up last nite in the table to change the bit. It just suddenly let go and dropped to the bottom of the cabinet. The height adjusting knob screw had come out and the knob came off releasing the router. I first figured no biggie, just put the knob back on with a little loctite and good to go... not... Got it back together but now wont come all the way up, misses quite a bit also as it wont come up enough to engage the spindle lock. I thought I had the carrier nut (they call it a threaded hex height adjuster in the parts list) threaded all the way up and everything in the right position when I put it together.
Anybody familiar with this beast have any insight on assembly tricks?
This making me rethink leaving the spring in for table use and maybe it's putting to much stress on the lift system.
I plan on calling Freud monday but gonna tick me off to pay shipping out to NC and maybe back..likely eat the difference in the sale price

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.
