Stiff pull on 550

Recommended Posts

What can be the cause and cure for the pull on my dillon getting real stiff. I have used the oil as recommended by dillon on the main shaft and this hasn't helped much. Any help would be great.

Thanks Jeff

I know that on my Dillon 650 if I have the shellplate snugged down to tight the press won't hardly cycle, not sure about the 550 though.

On one older 550 I have, oiling the pins that hold the link arms rreally helped

Just dropping a few drops of Kroil on each side of the arms, while it stayed assembled

I injected grease into the main pivot points for the arm, links and crank. My press does not have zerks but it does have holes for a grease needle. Made a big difference.
