Default Anyone disassemble a Lee Classic Turret Press?

I have a Lee Classic Turret press and have made over 9K rounds on it so far.

I've kept it as clean as possible but wanted to take it apart and give each part a complete cleaning.

I was not able to disassemble the linkage and remove the ram.

Has anyone done this or know how to?

I did google and only found one thread on a different board which ended with "you better call Lee Customer Service".

For now I'm using CLP on the ram and letting it slowly drip down and clean up the shaft. Any ideas?
Thanks.

I've been loading on mine since 1981 and have many, many, thousands of rounds loaded on it and I've never taken it apart.

Wow. Faux Triple post!

I have loaded up rounds on mine and only see a need to do light maintenance cleaning up piles of brass shavings and what not. Other than that keep it oiled and keep it greased and all should be well...
