Sea Tiger 555 with 8-plait rode?

I bought a boat with a Simpson Lawrence Sea Tiger 555 windlass.
On my previous boat I used chain plus 8-plait on an Ideal windlass with a conventional all-chain gypsy. The rope held nicely in the slot and stripped out without problem.
But, on this Sea Tiger, the rope jams in the chain-slot and the stripper cannot free it. I can purchase a rope-and-chain gypsy, but it has only been tested on regular 3-strand.
Has anybody successfully used 8-plait with a chain-and-rode gypsy?
