Square Deal B: ball bearing and spring

On the SDB.. under the shellplate there is the little ball bearing. Is the spring directly under it and accessible once the ball bearing is removed? Or is it under Platform Base Disc (part number13690) ?

When I removed shell plate I can see and remove ball bearing but I dont see the spring even though the ball bearing feels like it is sitting on a spring

Thanks

Online user manual is available. Just google search Dillon Square Deal instruction manual. I'm pretty sure you can download a pdf on it and print the entire manual for reference. I'm not going to go upstairs and remove the shell plate on one of mine but pretty certain the ball bearing you are referring to sits on top of the spring.

There is a spring directly under the ball.

You can use a BB if you lose their ball. It sits on a spring.

I have the users manual... According to schematic it appears to be under the platform base disc. I've taken the ball bearing off a couple of times but don't see the spring.. so I was thinking it was under another part.. or is it jist hard to see? Seems like on my 550 it was easy to spot.

If you can push it down and it moves back up, the spring is there.

Once you remove the ball bearing the spring can be removed straight up. there might be some grease or debris holding it in, so get a small pick to grab it and pull the spring up.

Use a magnet to remove and replace the ball. I've lost many, but the magnet works best for me.
