Primer feed tube.. not geeding

Square Deal B large pistol primer issue..

it looks like the little red plastic part where the primer rest before being fed into the primer system is deformed how do I change it.

When I take it apart, I can remove the inner large primer tube but the red plastic piece stays inside the assembly.. should it be pulled out?

is there a video on this anywhere? I've been searching all over YouTube and I can't seem to find anything

Answered my own question... Spare parts ordered. The part number is 14003 (red magazine orifice)

Now to figure out what caused it to malfunction.

RE: Primer feed tube.. not geeding

Check to make sure that the primer cup is properly adjusted on the slide. What Dillon told me to do was to take a dead primer, put it in the cup, and then push it down until the distance was 1.410" from the top of the cup to the bottom of the slide, then tighten the set screw to hold the pin in place. (Page 4 of the manual)
Also, there's a small adjustment screw just under the leaf spring on the front of the machine. If you're going from a small primer to a large primer, you'll turn that screw 1/8 turn COUNTERclockwise. If going from large to small, then turn it clockwise 1/8 turn. (Page 12 of the manual).
