Square Deal B Pawl Jump

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have pulled the press apart and cleaned/lubed everything. The indexing pawl is jumping when the index bolt rounds the lower part of the cam into the 'valley' this is happening without the shell plate on so it is not the indexing arm catching on shell plate. the problem seems to go away when I put more pressure on the handle on the downstroke. Will post video once it loads to youtube

The pawl mechanism is actuated by the bolt on the frame.  Is the plastic part that holds the pawl finger straight and smooth where it engages the bolt?  Is the spring that holds that plastic part to the ram in the correct position?  Those are the first two things I would guess are the issue...

Yep the finger is perfect and now nicely greased. The spring is in good shape and positioned correctly.

You need to contact Dillon. The pawl adjustment is set from the factory.
