Arm contact on upstroke

I have noticed recently that during the upstroke seating a primer that the arm is making contact with primer tube assembly. What do I need to adjust.

Thanks,

RE: Arm contact on upstroke

Check the posts on the frame where the link arm connects, and the machine handle for hairline cracks. Do this while priming a case. If no case or primer are present, then it is normal for the handle to touch the primer feed tube when pushing the handle forward.

RE: Arm contact on upstroke

Will second the idea of checking the handle for cracks especially from the bottom.
I know Dillon has gone through at least three modifications of the handles as I had all three at one time

best way to tell is primer wouldn't be fully seated even when the handle comes in contact with the machine body
