This may sound stupid but what do you mean by no play specifically?

Are you installing the locking collar on top of the upper bearing holder? The locking collar goes just under the swash and sandwiches the mainshaft bearings between the maingear and the collar.

I usually just press up on the bottom of the mainshaft while pressing down on the collar and tighten.

You just put it on top of the frame to keep the shaft from moving it up and down?
