Collison Case Insert Slide with Case feed system

Hello
After adjusting the platform to the main shaft (pushing the platform clockwise to the main shaft during tightening), that the Case is perfect aligned to the Depriming Die, the case feeder arm on the platform is so fare clockwise that the case insert slide front finger (the bigger one) has a collision with the case feed body bushing on the bottom of the case feeder body. The case feeder body can not mounted more forward to prevent the collision.
Hope you can follow my description and looking foreward for your helpful response.
THX in advanced

Hopefully the alignement tool is sent to me, if the tool tells that the platform is too fare clockwise, what would be the other version of solving the problem? The case is then not fare enought clockwise to get centered into the depriming die, the toolhead cannot be adjusted?

As in my other post already written, with the alignment tool from Dillon the alignment of toolhead and platform is proven to be fine. Now the case slide big finger has a collision with the bottom case tube.
The whole case feed system is not aligned well but with 3 screws fixed to the main body of the press.

What should I do?

Lay a flat surface along the side of the link arms, see if one or both are twisted slightly. We've seen this rarely, but if the handle is at horizontal, and someone pushes the handle sideways hard enough, it can happen.

Hi
Fingers of the slide are fine not bended. There is no pushing on the platform exept the mechanical pushing of the percussion cap feeding system on the main frame, so the platform is always pushed counter clock wise. The platform is then always in the same position during upstroke.
But the left big finger of the Case slide should be more than 3mm counter clock wise to be aligned to the case tube. The small finger of the Case slide has a gap of these 3-5mm.
The only way is to reposition the whole case feed system.
