now i know you can shim the back mount which i have done with a few bits of 35mm film but does not seem to be doing the job, is there anything eles i can do or try, Not sure of the make of the mounts
Are the mounts true, can you swap them around and the issue remains?

Other than that, some more shimming is required or get the mounts machined.

I used an adjustable one piece mount when I had a similar problem with an HW100.

Not cheap but gives masses of adjustment.
