Modeling a static structural of a gear crank chain

Modeling a static structural of a gear crank chain

Hello guys!
I've started to use ansys just a few weeks ago, and I'm trying to develop a experiment in order to show the deformation of a gear crank chain in an internal combustion engine. So far I have this model already, and as you can see in the next "dynamics study" the rigid dynamics work fine (I did that just to see that I applied the correct relations between parts, adding a rotational velocity in the joint ground-crankshaft).

Now what I want to do for my experiment is that when I add a pressure in the piston head, the whole mechanism moves like the rigid one but flexible. Let me explain it with a video showing what I want to do

You have any idea what should I do in order to relationate the pressure to the joint itself?
