Great tutorial Reefman   :win:
I've been waiting to see one of these opened and stripped down
 
++ cred
If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles

howsit tony

once again....top tut. studied it carefully (who needs keith.m) and decided to service it...cos i was bored. it only went out on one trip to the skei recently.

reel had a few throws only and got dunked once by a wave while in the pension pipe. when i brought the reel home.....saw that the spool did not spin like crazy like as when out the box. so i say ya...well its not too bad and assumed the bearing lube washed out.

servicing it by myself was very self rewarding and i thank u once again for showing us mortals how to look after our reels......anyways....was kinda shocked with what i found while servicing the reel.

dunno....maybe just my badluck....

the cast control bearing in my reel is the open type and is not like the standard sealed bearings. well thats not the problem, the problem is it refused to come out. i did remove the retainer clip. i tried prying it open with everything and decided to stop as i would have damaged the bearing. i just washed the entire casing with benzing....with the bearing in place.

then my biggest concern......you know the 2 bearings on either end of the spool itself?...the one the shaft sits in?.....they were both seized....after 1 trip......eish

i had to jam sumtin in the middle of the bearing and then used a long nose on the outer edge and turned it a couple times until it started to move again.

heard a funny grating noise inside the bearing as i was tryna run it free. soaked in benzine, oiled it up and it was ok....not hundreds....but ok.

just thought i would share.....sorry i know i complain like a old lady
