Eflite AT6 Texan retract replacement

Retracts have been well worn and work good on plane stand but on takeoff they don’t retract all the way into the wheel wells. I am using 4S and amps are under ESC limit. I replaced old retracts with new ones (stock) to see if this solves the problem.
The old retract was taken apart for inspection and to see how they work. See pics

Today the maiden with new retracts went great. The wheels go all the way up to the worm gear “stops” and the tires are flush with the underside of the wing!
