Lyman 58 clone loading leaver actuating arm link thingy
« on: February 01, 2020, 03:51:58 AM »
This is in regards to a Lyman ASP 44 cal revolver
I have a few questions in regards to the little tab (link) that goes between the ball rammer and the loading lever, on the one I'm rebuilding the holes in the link are elongated so I assume I need to make a new one, but as its sort of kidney shaped, which way is it supposed to face, curve up or down. Currently it faces down, but it seems to bind when closing, which could be because of the elongated holes. The schematic pics I've looked at show it looking straight?

It should be straight on both sides.

Technology and I don’t get on, if I can’t fix it with a hammer, give it to a child to do, and mine have grown up and left home :)

It should be straight on both sides.
That the impression I got from schematic drawings, it was just that this part looked original, when I clean up the rust on the other bits I’ll make a straight one and try it
