    I love my MEC 9000 with a new automate. But, recently it has started making a loud "clunk" when I release the buttons and it starts the up stroke. I can't make out where the noise is coming from or what is causing it. The reloads are fine. Just wondering if anyone else has had this happen.

    Mine was doing same thing, gave it a good cleaning and put anti-seize lube and it fixed my problem. Tony

    Agree. Sizing collect starts sticking when not lubed enough and then clunks or pops when it's forced to release. Do as Trapper T says. Bruce
