Double check all of your collets to make sure they extend inside the face of the flywheel. If they sink all the way into the flywheel with nothing extending outside, they won't work.

i had similar problem with mine... either put a washer/shim behind the collet or get the dremel out and give the inside of the flywheel nut a deeper taper... It shouldn't need much.

what i found was that the recess on the inside of the nut needs to be slightly bigger in diameter so it will wind down over the shoulder of the crank that the collet slides on

I had to file off a couple mm from the top of the collet I was using.
