 You would get away with the thinner post, but will need to replace the spacing sleeve with one of these:

One of the best upgrade out there and priced right.
Most of my reels have one.
The handle will feel a little stiff at first, but will work itself in nicely.
There is zero side way movement with the gear sleeve, no matter if the post is thinner or not...that reminds me I need to order some more.

Not sure what they're getting, yours I'm giving you the ok to push it to 20 lb. Wink
As for line capacity, figure 350 yds. of 20# mono... maybe 400, I don't remember.
Your reel is almost done, I made a mistake on ordering the inner rings, I ordered 1 instead of 2, I thought I did have 2 on there Roll Eyes.
The second one should be here today or tomorrow, Scott's doesn't mess around when it comes to speedy delivery Smiley.

I've been able to shim some a my gear sleeves and eliminate about 90% a the horizontal movement. I've found that old ball bearing shields fit well and look to be made a ss. So, these P. Challenger spacer sleeves get ridda the vertical slop on all stock reels using the 98-60 sleeve? How about the Cortez Conversion plates?

Edit: horizontal for me = in & out movement and vertical = wiggling back and forth.

90% by adding a shim, looks like you have it covered, no need for a spacer for you then.
No, these custom spacers do not work with Tom’s plates or Accurate.
I did request the hole on those to be a little larger, but there was no interest.
You could make it work, but will need to reduce the custom spacer .
I have done this to some that requested it, but keep in mind, the chrome would be gone.
A little grease would kee it happy.

Joe, thanks anyway, Mike, thanks, great to have those measurements in case I decide to add a SS sleeve.

You would get away with the thinner post, but will need to replace the spacing sleeve....There is zero side way movement with the gear sleeve, no matter if the post is thinner or not...Sal

Sal, thanks for that tidbit. So if I'm understanding correctly, the slop created by the thinner post would be compensated by a tight fitting spacing sleeve, in effect leaving the gear sleeve "floating" around the post, and being supported only by the spacing sleeve? That would weaken the assembly and lead to wear inside the spacing sleeve, and would add cranking resistance as well. I would rather leave the original gear sleeve then add a SS one to a thinner post.

Even though the post is thinner, check the base where it is pressed in on the bridge plate, that's where the sleeve takes most of the pressure. I have a 3-60 of the same and when comparing it to the thicker post the base is just a tad smaller.
of course if you have lots of play, I see your point and I agree with you.
I actually have one with a brass insert, but don't remember where it came from
 
A new bridge would make things easier.

I was just thinking...you are going to use 20lb. line. Likely your drag won't be set tighter than 10lb. I think that stock sleeve will do just fine. Cool

Ah-ha, I kinda figured that might be the case.
