Mounting 4MD-20X Cart on Dual 1229Q

Looking for some assistance with setting this cart up. I mounted the cart in the shell and used a protractor to set the angles. Issue is with balancing the tone arm. I have it in single play position. The tone arm has very little vertical movement. I got the arm to float slightly but I can barely get the needle onto the gram scale. Is there are way to get the tone arm to lift higher?
