Nut and bolt constrainted to allow/show motion

I'm trying to constrain a length of ACME threaded rod to a nut so that when the rod is spun or threaded it shows it traveling into the nut as it will be grounded. I would like it to work as a driven assembly or if I was to turn or spin the rod by the mouse. I've reseached this for the last 2 days and can not spend any more time on it so time to ask the experts. Any help is greatly appricated.

Also I'm running IV2013 and do not have dynamic simulation.

Both of these work but the first gets an error after too many revolutions. Not sure what causes it.
