Dillon 650 Bearing Kit Installation Instructions

  1. Loosen the shell plate set screw with a 1/8” Allen key.
  2. Remove the shell plate bolt using a 1/4" Allen key.
  3. Remove the ejector wire and shell plate.
  4. Remove the metal detent ball and insert the Teflon ball in its place.
  5. Position the shell place back into position.
  6. Install the shell plate bearing on the shell plate bolt – first a thrust washer, then the needle bearing, then the remaining thrust washer.
  7. Insert the shell plate bolt back into position and snug it down until it stops, then back it out 1/8 of a turn.  Check to make sure the shell plate indexes freely.  If not, loosen the bolt slightly and re-check.  Once set properly, tighten the shell plate set screw and do a final check to make sure the shell plate rotates freely.
  8. Replace the ejector wire. 
  9. Perform a final check to make sure the press operates and cycles properly.
