    Need some help with a Lee Press... anyone??

    I've obtained a relatively inexpensive Lee Pro 100 Progressive Press from a friend of mine (this is my first venture into the progressive world, always worked single-stage), and I've had to replace some stuff on it.
    I'm wondering if someone can tell me how I go about replacing the Primer Trough on it. I've looked over the instructions time and again, both online and the ones I have sitting right in front of me and I can't seem to make heads, nor tails of it.
    I'm doing this for my .45 ACP and would appreciate any help anyone might be able to give me in this matter. Thanks a million!!

    IIRC remove shell plate then insert the large primer pin with spring in the hole,sit the large feed over the pin and then install the shell plate over the primer feed

    FWIW they have great customer service and could probably walk you thru it with a phone call.

    You're right. They do. But I don't have a working phone anymore. My cat knocked it into a sink full of dishwater.

    Take the primer trough and button off and prime by hand. You'll be much happier.

    Colin, I checked out that forum and found some very helpful information in getting it done. Once I read what someone had to say and actually looked at my press, it was something that took all of about 5-minutes.
    Thanks a lot. Now I'm ready and raring to go. I feel all giddy now that it's up and running again!
    Thanks again!!

    Okay, update time: I got it all done and I now have my reloading bench built for the most part too. I live in a 2-bedroom apartment and I have a reloading bench that's strong enough it could hold an elephant. It's almost completed but I do have my presses on it and it's up and running. I've been having so much fun reloading today that I almost forgot what I was missing!!

    Thanks again guys. I appreciate the help.
