TORIUM 50 SERVICE
« on: September 27, 2010, 06:44:50 pm »
To service a Torium 50, all you need to do is follow the TORIUM 30 tutorial....

http://www.ultimateangling.co.za/index.php/topic,36.0.html

The reels are very similar.

There are a few notable differences.
The 50 has 2 Anti-reverse Dog Pawls, a different Drag washer setup and a few arbitrary minor differences in Ratchet clicker Assy.


THE DOUBLE ANTI-REVERSE DOG PAWLS

 

 
 

 
 
 
THE DRIVE SHAFT BUSHING is also slightly different to the 30...
 

 
 

 
 

 
 
 
DRAG WASHERS AND SEQUENCE
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

Now is not a good time to go fishing... said nobody... EVER!!

@Reefman....with the Tor30, the dog pawl was strengthened with a drag spring, but on the Tor50 the layout inside the reel is slightly different and I don't think the spring system would work. What do you suggest be done in this case? I wanted to put springs on my Tor50 dog pawls, as I have heard of cases where the anti-reverse system breaks and the reel basically grinds to a halt.

Kosi... Probably the best way to do it would be to get 2 Dogpawl springs that come standard with the Trini DC. Adapt them to fit the Torium 50 shouldn't be too much of a problem. The Retainer plate should keep them in place quite nicely. Alan Tani does it this way. He placed a small washer first and then the DC spring over that, then screwed the Retainer plate back in.

Tony why do you say the bush is slightly different on the 50 to the 30? Is that just size wise or are you refering to the ears? Secondly I just went to bearing man looking for the appropriate bearing they have a non flanged bearing that is 10 and a flanged bearing measuring 11 which one should I get

Ok, thanks. I've seen the Alan Tani way of doing it with that spring. I thought you might have had a "reefman" way of doing it. I quite like Alan's way, but just need to get hold of those springs...

TORIUM 50 BEARING SIZES

RHS Spool bearing                  7x14x5
LHS SPool bearing                  6x13x5
top drive shaft bearing          10x15x4
Bottom drive shaft bushing    6x11.5x3

The bearing sizes ideally should be exact...? But if I had to chose, it would be the 11, that would be a closer fit. The 10 would be too loose. Alternatively, keep the original bushing.

Bush to bearing.
I can not get the correct size bearing anywhere.
Does anyone know what the drive shaft bearing size is on the Trini 50? Will this bearing fit in the Torium 50 to replace the bush or where can I get the correct size bearing?

I don't know the size of the Trini 50 bearing Piet, otherwise I would have helped you already!  w;k If I had to hazard a guess, I reckon there's a good chance it will be the same size.

Pieter,
Is the existing bronze bushing worn that you want to replace it?
If not, I would leave it alone.
If there is one place on a reel a bronze bushing is probably better for longevity, its on the main shaft under the main gear assembly.

Thanks for feedback Reefman and Fishatic


I want to replace the bush as illustrated in the tutorial above. I do not see a problem with the standard bush but personally I would like the bearing. I do service my own reels regularly and like to pay special attention to the bearings. My wife recons I am full of nonsense when it comes to my reels.  :sreel:  I will check the size on the Trini 50. Thanks.

Personally I would leave it as a bushing.
But, If it makes you happy, then replace it.

Hi all


I stripped a Trini 50 and the bearing is not the same size as the bush in the Torium 50.


So if anyone can find the correct size bearing please let me known where I cane get it.


Thanks.
