Cylinder Mechanism Help

I'm having a little bit of trouble with my cylinder mechanism in creo. The picture below will help to explain but basically I have managed to get it so the top part will pivot on a rotational axis but because I've used the cylinder, its also giving it a translational direction which I don't want, is there any way I can either get rid of the translation axis or maybe add a second constraint that will place the edge on part 1 coincident with my edge on part 2 so its fixed laterally? I have tried putting in translational constraints and setting the maximum and minimum to 0 but it wont let me do this.

 

You can see from the picture that there's 2 red grab handles but I only want the rotation one.
