    My reloader is hanging up about 1/2 inch from the top of the stroke. It almost looks like it is trying to auto index a little early. Anybody have any thoughts as to what to check? Thanks, Todd

    I have never had a 9000G but I had a 9000H, can they have the same problem with the side plate coming loose?

    I always start with a quick clean check the sizer collet for binding, check all fastners for proper tightness.

    check the actuator rod for the collet, sounds like it is hanging and not releasing the collet.

    thanks

    Get out the anti-seize and lube the collet.

    If it is indexing early, the quickest and easiest thing to check is the black side plate. It is easiest with two people, or a third hand if you have one extra. Loosen the two 1/2" bolts on the bottom of the plate, tap or pull it towards you, and while holding it as far forward as it will go, do up the bolts. There are nuts on the back, under the frame of the loader, so you need two 1/2" wrenches. Keep it square to the bench, and don't raise or lower it from its original level. If this doesn't correct the problem, look in the owners manual for the troubleshooting section and follow the directions.

    I just had my 9000 go out of time from one stroke to the next, and after going through the troubleshooting routine, I called MEC and was given the side plate trick, which fixed it right up.

    If you don't have an owners manual, you can find them online at mecreloaders.com.

    You can also call MEC for technical support at 800 797 4632.

    The side plate is a good bet, but like Birddog said, check the actuator rod. Attached to this rod (part #30 in the manual) is a cam roller. Part #8. I have had the cam roller wipe out due to lack of lubrication. What turned me on to it was the fact the turret would hang up before it reached the top of it's stroke.

    Can't hurt to check... even if it's just to make sure it's lubricated.

    Need to determine if it is just indexing too early or is it, in fact, hanging up on the upstroke yet still initiating the rotation. Sometimes when it hangs up on the way up it will release and jump up. Two different problems with very different potential list of fixes.

    My 9000G does this often and will sometimes corect itself by turning the shell and trying again. After about three failures I give up and either throw the shell away or if it's new I will deprime it on an old deprimer/sizer I've had for years and then it'll work perfectly. ?????????????????????

    Hi

    I did the following when I had this problem:

    1. Resizer Clean and lubricated
    2. Adjustment block on back right and side plate adjusted properly
    3. Lastly - Order new piston

    In my case the new piston solved the problem.

    Regards

    You need to lube the collet on the resizer.
