Lr3 hitch help

Can someone measure for me the extended an retracted lengths of the pin on a lr3 hitch?

I was curious to how it worked while installing the new lock on mine. And decided to take it apart to find it was spring loaded. Somehow I found the ball bearing....twice actually after shooting int the garage.

So the pin that retracts when you turn the green knob. I want to know what the lengths are so I can get the pin in the right place. Since the green handle turns a splined shaft it causes the pin to walk on it. But I need to know when to inset the shaft.

I assume the ball bearing is to keep the pin from moving round on the hole? A stabilizer? If anyone knows about ht ball bearing that would be cool too.

Thanks for the help guys.
Pete

Thanks Neill. Does yours look like this when it is out? I think I got it right. Just want to make sure. Looks like its in just the right spot to keep that ball bearing in. Pretty fun trying wrestle it back in. Those are some gooood springs.
