Lee 3 turret to 4 turret autoindex-w/o instructions

Got my box from Midway this morning containing the 3 hole to 4 hole turret press update... but ZERO instructions. I know I can probably wait a week and get a copy from Lee, but wonder if anyone has a digital copy.

I notice that I can't use the primer gadget that was used with the 3 hole, as the slot is now offset about 20 degrees.

Can anyone help?

Thanks!
John

Have you called Lee? (Call Lee Precision for sure, AND the retailer you got it from, they are likely not the same).

IDK if this will help. Here are the only regular Lee Turret Press instructions I could find. http://leeprecision.com/cgi-data/instruct/TP2131.pdf

hold on here Lee doesn't make a 3-4 hole press or am I missing something.I thought you either had a 3 hole press or a 4 hole press.

I think you might have a 3 hole press ( Lee Pro 1000 ) with a 4 hole die block.or its the other way around but I could be wrong.I'd call Lee and find out for sure.

Lee makes a 3 hole turret press. The Pro 1000 is based on the 3 hole turret press. Lee makes a conversion kit to convert the 3 hole turret press into a 4 hole turret press.. The OP is talking about the conversion kit and that it didn't come with instructions.. He does need to call Lee about this though.

Personally, I would have bought the Lee Classic turret press as it is already a 4 hole auto index press and a much better press than the original 3 hole turret press. Then I would have sold the 3 hole turret press.

The OP also needs to buy a new ram as the primer attachment is now going to be mis-aligned.
