yes, but why is it hitting the case, is your wristpin bearing worn out?

Why not trim the case? I was just told to trim the little lip off the inside of my case when I had the same problem a couple of days ago. I took a clean rag, spread some clean grease on it, and stuffed it in the case to catch any shavings. 3 minutes later, with my trusty Dremel, everything's cleaned up. You can even do a little porting while your in there.
