you have to make sure you have the bearing blocks in correctly (right side up) and also the lower bearing block can move a little up and down to compensate for a little looseness. It only has slightly elongated holes for this so if you have a lot of slop I would guess one or both of the main bearing blocks are installed improperly.. Not implying you built badly but there are alot of parts there and the instructions can be confusing.

Can't speak for the 60 but the assembly instructions for the 30 @ raptortechique.com recommend adding shims to the lower part of the main shaft to remove the up/down play.

I've never had to shim a 60's mainshaft though....And I've binned 2 now (and crash tested another 4) the only ones I had to shim was the crappy mavrikk alum bearing blocks...sounds like you got the b-blocks in inside out (upside down whathaveyou)
