LGEO and part 32293 - Kevin - 2017-08-17

I'm having a problem when rendering part 32293 (Technic Steering Link 1x9) from LPub3D in POV-Ray with LGEO enabled.  When using LGEO, the part is shifted downward 2 LDUs, causing an overlap with the towball pins at either end.

When I disable LGEO, the part is rendered correctly:

It is also rendered correctly when using LDGLite:

I see the same problem with I use LDView to export the model to a .pov file and render it directly.

As far as I can tell, I don't have an LGEO substitute for part 32293.

Any ideas what is happening and what I can do to fix it?

Thank you.

I figured it out.  It has nothing to do with the link--the problem is with the definition of the towball.  I edited my lg_2736.inc to fix the size and placement of the sphere, and that fixed the problem.

I may have to look into a more recent version of an LGEO parts library.
