I have tried it everywhere in the cam tunnel.
The one I made has no cone on the guide piece, that makes the piece small enough it can be put into the cam tunnel. You may need to have that cone cut off yours.

Looks like you are finding out some of the particularities of budget "home user" grade machine shop tools. They are always just a bit less quality and engineering. In your case, like several I have looked at in the years since I made my driver, the rod is just too short.
