The rod may be bent and contacting the side of the shaft.

I agree with 1932BB The rod is probably bent just a tad and is binding on the tube. Check it out, and don't bend the rod too much. It won't hurt anything to put a wee tad of grease on the rod where it is rubbing on the tube. Good luck and keep us posted. What about posting a picture of your 35 PU.
