Back block alignment issues?

As I'm sure you all know, I'm a noob to autocockers. I just looked at my back block and its not even close to being alighned with the gun is that normal? Its so far out of alignment that it pushes the cocking rod to the left.

The pump arm that comes off the ram will have kink in it, that kink should line up to put the pump arm as close to the body as possible.

You may have also gotten a bent ram shaft, it happens when people aren't careful taking off their front block.

Could it be that the cocking rod is bent and is actually pulling the back block to the left? Its supposed to be bent a little bit, I believe it comes out of the ram and bends out (to the left) a little bit before reaching the back block.

It should bend toward the body. If it's bending left, away from the body, that's bad.

Ram shaft or pump arm bent.

They are easy to GENTLY bend back. Most pro shops now a days, unless they employ old school types, wont know the first thing about fixing a cocker.

Almost a sure bet that the pump arm isnt straight or the ram is bent.
Why dont you give us a better picture before you pay someone a tech fee for a simple fix?
Take a picture of the detente side so we can see how the pump arm is aligned to the body. Take one with the back block closed and one open.
Take another with the block removed so we can also see the pump arm.

Giving us one kinda fuzzy and off angle picture and asking us to diagnose the problem is like giving a crayon drawing of an xray to a doctor to reset a broken arm.. Just not enough info.

Lol dude your pump arm is on wrong.
Spin it around so that the long part is in the body groove.

The bend goes out towards the ram then swoops in towards the body.

The pump arm should dip into the body, not away from the body

The only other reason, if you have the pump arm correct, is the ram shaft is bent.

everything looks good to me, the pump arm just needs to be turned in a little. you dont need to pay someone to fix it or buy new parts. just give it about 1/4 of a turn.

it should be like this:



also without the bolt or cocking rod in place the back block/pump arm/ram shaft are free to spin. it probably just got turned a little while you had the bolt out.

also to clear up some parts terminology since a couple people in here have got it wrong, the pump arm is what connects the ram shaft to the back block, the cocking rod is the one that screws into the bottom of the body. dont want anyone adjusting the wrong parts now do we?

I doubt that's a problem cause the last pic he posted shows the gun without the back block on the pump arm.
