Vertical mounting

I’ve read some stuff here on mounting the Longmill vertically, and seen the video. I’ve got mine assembled and ready to go, but for space reasons I wanted to try mounting mine to the wall. I got it hung up (with some help) and have started it putting it thru some testing.

Not surprisingly to me, the Y axis is having a heck of a time pulling the gantry up. I’ve tried adjusting the backlash bolts with no real success, and when I do get it to pull it up it’s usually in fits and starts, and will slide back down about 8-15 mm when it’s done. None of this was unexpected, but I was hoping I could adjust some things and make it work.

If I absolutely have to I’ll take it down and mount it normally, but if anybody has gotten it to run successfully while mounting on a wall, I’d really appreciated some tips.
