I replaced the interlock cam 2 years ago with the doorman metal interlock cam it has been fine

ok then either something has blocked the shiftier from moving forward or a cable issue

ok I will have to check it out I have been moving into a new home so havent had a lot of time to look at it right now

basicly take teh assembly out like you did before see if the cable will move freely or not if the cable is good then something is in the shiftier not allowing it to move.
