    Anyone has reason to change out the motor on their casefeed? Mine 16 year-old one gave up the ghost this afternoon. I don't relish forking over $220 bucks as all I need is a motor.

    Appreciate any help.

    Check out industrial supply places like Grainger or McMaster-Carr

    Does your dead motor have a data label on it?

    I don't have a Dillon (gasp!) so I'm not familiar with the motor they use. Could you post some pictures? I'll try to help.

    If you dont feel like paying a hundred bucks for a motor from Grainger try using the Surplus Center in Nebraska. I found a motor there (more power than I needed) that would fit the same bolt pattern on an old RL1000 case feeder. About 20 dollars as I recall.

    So what about the no BS warranty all the Dillon owners always rave about? Why won't they replace the motor?

    Thanks for input, guys. I'll do a little research tomorrow

    Belt, the motor is marked:

    ZGM-1704-39
    30191
    Dillon
    8CF165
    4 RPM
    120V 60HZ 0.3A

    Pretty simple looking, but electronics ain't my specialty.

    It is a gear reduction motor. I would also try Dillon if I were you. They even had a motor mod kit for my ancient (70's) Dillon vibratory case cleaner if I had wanted to bother fixing it. I like the Thumlers and SS pins now.:D

    Joatmon,

    Do you have a link to the surplus center you mentioned?

    I'm with john16443

    What does Dillon say?

    Give them a chance to offer suggestions before spending a lot of time searching for a replacement you might have to be cutting and fitting into place. Even if the motor is not covered by Dillon's warranty, they might have some advice or help to offer.

    Beltfed,
    Just google www.surpluscenter.com, that should get you there. Look for the section on AC gearmotors, inline. The inventory changes so you have to check the output specs on your motor/drive and go for a close match.

    GD,

    Can you offer a little help to the seller on eBay that you got the geared motor from?

    Was it new or used?

    I'll try...I didn't have an ebay account at the time so I had a friend order it for me. I'll get in touch with him tonight and see if he still has that info.

    Belt,

    That's almost a dead match. Only difference I see is the cross shaft that drives the shellplate. I called Dillon when they opened and they do offer motors for $65. For that amount I'm not going to screw around.

    I appreciate all the input.

    That's good news NFL!


    GD, If you find out great, but I guess it's no biggy if you can't since things look to be taken care of. Thanks again.
