V6 Engine Model Issues

Hi everyone, I am recreating a model V6 engine from this SolidWorks tutorial(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZJcM8417AU&list=PLm1W92pCWeKMVB_MXcN2Ce5GjcijTuGt2&index=20). I have completed all of the parts and am now assembling. Unfortunately, the SolidWorks assembly is very different from the Onshape assemblies. I am around 4:08:35 in the video and have been getting issues with my gear relations. Right now, I have the left bank set up seemingly correct(It spins correctly when I do it manually, but I can no longer animate the mates). When I try to do the same things on the right bank, it gives me issues and errors with the tangent mates between the Rocker Arm and the Camshaft and the Rocker Springs. I am not sure whats causing this error, if anyone knows please help. Thank you. https://fryeburgacademy.onshape.com/documents/f5284f8b9ac4c361d8a8ef44/w/4d5095f69dcd702386f491ac/e/52761b5af55e577703ecb4b1?renderMode=0&uiState=66041fc686dc143aadef485f
