Can't get pin to follow slot correctly at all

Hey everyone,
I've been working on a project where an inside chamber with a pin follows a slot on an outside chamber such that when you twist the inside chamber, it follows the path on the outside chamber and achieves linear motion. However, I haven't been able to get this to animate properly at all. I've tried all sorts of mates - pin slot mates, tangent mates, cylindrical mates - and I've tried surfaces and edges. I can't seem to figure this out. Could someone assist me?
