    Pacific Multi Power 'C' problem .....

    Off and on I've been in possession of or using this press since Dad bought it new in 71-72' . It came in a Pacific - Hornady box and is Hornady red but has the Pacific tag on it . The owners manual says it's a Multi Power 'C' , until this morning I was sure it was a 008 .....

    The ram isn't stuck and it actually freed up nicely with all the moving parts parts moving . It's been boxed out of service for 20+ years .
    Well in my desire to get that last inch of ram slicked up ....... Let's leave it at that was dumb .

    The handle block has a stepped shaft and captured links . The links are held with blind roll and step pins that can be removed after the ram is out (stupid was involved in learning this part ) . The only way to get the ram out is to remove the lever/ram connection pin . I'm guessing it has an a stop on one side and a blind snap ring as it doesn't show any other means of retention.

    Is there some other means of removing the ram to handle block than BFH , brute force or 12 ton press ? Some clever hidden paint filled 1/16" pin hole or something?

    Man I wish I knew or could be some help you you. Ive got my dads old RCBS press from that era. When I put it up it was working fine, but who knows what it is doing now. Iím saving it for one of my boys. I should really get it out and make sure itís still usable.

    I learned that in the era of the press many makers used pressed pins if I want to get it apart I'll have to press it out .
