How to constrain a cycloidal gear in CREO 2.0 Mechanism

7l_cyclo_drive_output_study.jpg7l_cycloid_drive_mechanism_input.jpg

Can someone tell me how to constrain the cycloidal gear above in CREO 2.0 Mechanism?  I've used the slot and pin constraints, and the gear stays within the bearings as it should when the input shaft is rotated.  But the gear rotates erratically, sometimes it moves much more than it should and sometimes doesn't.  The gear should "rotate" 51.43 degrees with each complete rotation of the input shaft.

Thank you.

‌My first thought would be 3D Contact connections but I haven't tried them on something like this so I can't say for sure it would work.
