Shell Plate Not Advancing

I have a slightly different issue with the shell plate not advancing with my Square Deal. It appears that with each stroke the indexer shifts slightly out of position and does not line up with the hole properly to index it. I am not sure how to set it so it stays in the right position. Here is a link which shows the issue.

Any help would be appreciated.

RE: Shell Plate Not Advancing

Have you called Dillon?  The video looks like there is a bind or dirty spot that is not allowing the index to move fully over.  I would try a small shot of Hornaday 'One Shot' shot on the pivot points to see if that works.  Only a drop is needed.  I expect some dis-assembly and cleaning might be in order.

Dillon on the phone can best advise by watching the video and can help with grease and oil locations.

Keep us posted.

I would suggest cleaning and lubrication first. If that fails to correct it, then we can mail you a replacement index lever.

Thanks all. A good cleaning and a tightening of the bolt holding the mechanism in place seems to have solved the problem.
