    Help putting tracker back together

    Hey guys. Found this site while searching for instructions to put my tracker .357 back together.
    Today I shot some 38 handloads that were given to me. One was a little too tight fitting so I tried to push it out by pushing the extractor rod. While doing so the cylinder slid partially off the yoke and stuck back for enough that it wouldn't close.
    When I got home I took the whole cylinder assembly apart to see if something broke. It all looked fine so I tried putting it back together. Everything went back in except I can't get the cylinder all the way back on the yoke. I got it in once with the extractor out but then couldn't get the extractor in. Do I just need to force it onto the yoke?
    Thanks for any help..

    maybe theres carbon under the ejector star and not letting it seat fully? or maybe you might have been the rod?

    I believe you have to install the cylinder before installing the extractor.

    The cylinder has an internal "snap ring" that clicks into place on the yoke. You will have to press it on by hand with some force. Be sure the inside of the cylinder is really clean as well as the inside of the yoke tube.

    If you have the extractor in the cylinder before installing the cylinder onto the yoke, the extractor will probably prevent the cylinder "snap ring" from spreading which allows it to pop over the yoke tube.
