Calcutta 400D upgrade

Postby Albiejay » Wed Mar 08, 2017 2:06 pm

I have a new Calcutta 400d that I have started upgrading. I recently purchased a kit from Boca that contained 3 bearings. I replaced the back plate bearing and put the other two bearings under the tension knob. Did I replace the right bearings? The Spool does not have a bearing on the shaft behind the pin, instead it has a plastic bushing. I did order two more bearings that I will be using to replace the plastic bushing on the spool as well as the one on the drive shaft I just wondered if the first three I replaced were the correct ones. BTW, the orange seal ABEC7 bearings are incredible. Only issue is I am now forced to have all brakes to keep from backlashes. I love this reel and wanted to make it even smoother than it already was.

I did also get a carbon fiber drag washers I plan on installing when I do the remaining bearings
