This Shellplate Bearing Kit smooths indexing and reduces play and wobble in the shell plate of Dillon BL 550, RL 550, XL 650 and SL 900 presses. It also reduces the "snap" when the index ball engages the shellplate … greatly reducing powder loss from cases on the shellplate.

Included in Kit:
1 Oilite® Plus Oil/Teflon® Lubricated Thrust Bearing
1 Polyamide-imide Index Ball
1 Reduced Tension Index Ball Spring (Stainless Steel)
2 Index Ball Spring Adjustment Washers (Stainless Steel)
Instructions

✓ Works on BL 550, RL 550, XL 650 and SL 900 presses.

Easy Drop-In Installation
The custom reduced tension index ball spring means you don't have to worry about cutting the OEM spring. Just drop it into place and you are good to go! If your feel that the spring is too light, two washers are included to incrementally increase the spring tension. The spring and washers are stainless steel for corrosion resistance.

Polyamide-Imide Index Ball
The polymer Index Ball is a fraction of the mass of the OEM steel ball (0.62g versus 3.52g). That is 92.4% lighter! Due to the lower mass, it doesn't violently hammer the bottom of the shellplate when it engages the detent … and thus doesn't toss powder out of the case. The Polyamide-imide ball is also much harder and more wear resistant than balls made from other plastics (e.g. Delrin®).

Oilite® Plus Bearing
The Oilite® Plus Thrust Bearing is sintered bronze lubricated with Oil/Teflon®. It never needs lubrication and the Teflon® reduces friction 17% compared to a standard oil lubricated Oilite® bearing.
It is also thinner than other bearing kits using a needle roller bearing … yielding more engagement of the shellplate bolt threads in the ram.

Xl 650 bearing plate kitI have 3 650's and all have the bearing kit. I am so pleased with the ease of installation and increased productivity. Before installing them there was powder everywhere. Now there is virtually no lose and much easier cycling. I recommend it for all XL 650's. Written by Louis Chapman on Tue 19 Feb 2019 12:14:03 AM GMT
Outstanding productPrior to the installation of the shell plate bearing kit my XL650 was awash in spilled powder. Now indexing is extremely smooth with almost no powder spillage! Well worth the cost. Written by Tom Blankenship on Wed 31 Oct 2018 3:11:40 AM GMT
Excellent UpgradeJust installed this kit on my Dillon 550C. Very easy to install with clear instructions. The shell plate indexes so much smoother now...like "buttah". Excellent upgrade..highly recommended! Written by Stephen A Schulman on Sat 28 Jul 2018 5:32:57 PM GMT
