Lost mate of sub assembly

Hello,

I am using Onshape to draw models of steam engines that I make for my hobby. I find OnShape a very useful tool and I made already a few drawings for some sub projects.

Now, I am working on a drawing of a boiler for a stationary steam engine. Unfortunately I have a problem (for the second time but the first time I put the made a new assembly).

My project you can find in: 
https://cad.onshape.com/documents/72a7c30d5faf8b79797dc009/w/b5ed463c595ee6d1fd9e385c/e/bffa959c51eed0b0bb075c7e

The problem is that some mates that are available in a sub assembly are missing in the final assembly. I made a sub assembly of the pressure part of the boiler (Ketel drukdeel) and I used it in the complete assembly of the boiler (Ketel compleet).

Can you put me in the right direction to what I did wrong and how I can solve this?

Thanx.

Johan van der Werf

    Oeps, problem solved. From my subassembly I created a group and this solved the problem.
