Default BTE Delta Vortex/ Robart retract help

I am hoping someone in this forum can help. I have a BTE Delta Vortex that I put robart air retracts on. The nose is the 607. The problem I am having is the center pin (aluminum looking thing that housing rotates with) keeps wanting to back out during flight. It slides back in fairly tight but under any small vibrations that you would get under flight, it starts to work its way out. This is a brand new gear and I keep thinking I am missing something obvious that keeps this pin in place?

Anyone can help? Here is a pic of the gear in question

Thanks

I have a Vortex with retract gear, also. Could you post pictures of your installation showing the part your refer to? That would help when asking for advice.

Well, I took the pic of the nose gear I am using (Robart 607) and now drew an arrow to the piece that keeps wanting to back out. There must be something that is suppose to retain this piece in there not allowing it to slide out?
