Moped STEM rocks

I have a new Ariel D-class that arrived late fall and due to winter weather was looking to spending time on it only to find the handlebars rock in the stem when braking. The problem seems to be in the stem itself as with or without the handlebars inserted the center moves back and forth. I am wondering if I am missing a part or something. Here is a link to a YouTube video of my stem.
. Any ideas would be most appreciated.

Here's a screen grab from Court's review of what it should look like

Did you try assembling the pieces to look like that?

Thanks that helped. I had searched the net and couldn't find a decent closeup. I am back in business with your help. I hope good karma returns to you in exchange.

Glad it helped. Just to be sure - you tightened the top nut just a tiny bit more than snug, and THEN tightened the two side bolts below it, right?
