Title: stainless steel gear sleeves - penn squidders, jigmasters, and smaller senators
Post by: alantani on December 19, 2008, 09:35:59 AM
the penn 500 jigmaster was originally designed for 30 pound mono and 5 pounds of drag.  if you crank down on the star or if the drags get sticky, you can easily double that.  once you exceed 7-8 pounds of drag and start cranking, you will round off the top of of the drive shaft that it attaches to.  this drive shaft, in penn fishing reels, is called a gear sleeve.  to increase the functional drag range of these reels, i recommended greasing the drag washers and installing a stainless steel gear sleeve.  the stainless steel will hold up to pressures of 12 pounds (maybe a little more), meaning that you used up to 40# mono and a 30% drag setting.  for the squidder gear sleeve, you will be replacing part #98-155.  for the jigmaster 500/501, the long beach series, the senator 111, 112, 112h, and 113, 113h, the mariner 49/149, you will be replacing part #98-60.  in the jigmaster 505/506 and SOME of the jigmaster 500/501's, you will be replacing a fine thread gear sleeve that has a part # of 98-505.  the coarse thread gear sleeve uses a #10-60 or 10-66 star, the fine thread gear sleeve uses a #10-505 star.  check the number stamped on your star first.  

when ordering let me know if you want a #98-60 coarse stainless, a #98-505 fine stainless, or a #98-155 coarse stainless.  they are $20 each, shipping included.   send a check to alan tani, 12362 ted court, saratoga, ca 95070 and i'll ship out them out.

Good Morning.  Alan.  The people at PennParts suggested I contact you.  I use my Penn 114h's for grouper digging with a lot of drag.  The top of the gear sleeves are rounding.  I've been reading and talking to friends and they say to replace with a stainless sleeve.
I'm having a difficult time finding the part in stainless.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Thank You 


i called electramate and they were closed today.  here's a link http://www.elec-tra-mate.com/index.html   they should carry this part.  my machinist has been asking about making one, but i have not seen the need yet.  it would cost me about $3000 for a minimum order of 100 pieces.  that's why i've balked so far.  please let me know.  thanks!  alan

On a whim I contacted our local commercial supply house and they carry the
sleeve in stainless.
Following is there contact info if you are interested.

i just spoke to them and they confirm that they have ten at a $19.95 price.  i called back to verify the price because normally they go for $35.  um, i also ordered three to keep in inventory, so i guess they have seven now.........

hi i got that part today this morning i put it on had a hard time trying to get the pin in i got in in by a little force but would not spin and inspected the part it would not work so i put the original back on maybe this part is only for the older penn jigmasters mine is new penn jigmaster 500L or maybe there was a defect with the gear sleeve itself email me back or call me let me know if you ran in to this problem before i mailed the part back today
 


i think i found the problem.  the slot for the retaining pin in the old bridge posts were ground down pretty deep.  i think that the new ones from china are not.  i'm going to have to do some looking, but i think that the stainless steel gear sleeves will not fit the chinese versions of these reels.  this could really be a mess!  stand by......

Post by: alantani on April 14, 2011, 07:12:20 AM
pennparts.com has the correct ones.  i have all the ones that were cut too deep.  i use them on reels that come across this bench, or reels that in can verify are older US-made reels.

So will replacing the gear sleeve part #98-60 work on the 113hs as well?
I assuming that there is no thin or thick threads to match up as on the Jigmaster.

Gary,
The 113H uses the 98-320 gear sleeve [a little bigger than the 98-60]. The stainless one from PennParts is the 98-320AT.

Just wanted to pass on my thanks and appreciation for the fine S/S gear sleeves (1 x Jigmaster 500 and 1 x 113H).
They've worked a treat and are beautifully made.
Had to tap a new thread in the 500 star (mistakenly ordered the coarse thread and didn't have a 10-66 star), so I'm hoping the new thread holds. Will have to keep an eye out for a 10-60 or 66, I s'pose.
Great product, great service - thanks again Alan.
All the best,
Justin (New Zealand)

They are well engineered and superb bits of kit!

New Chinese made Penn 309's (in the UK) have serious issues with excessive bore clearance in their Sleeves. They are being replaced with original USA made Sleeves,while stocks last. :-[

Interchangeability of Penn parts may be a problem when USA spares are no longer available.

I just wanted to poin out that the 98-505ATs ( fine ) came up with two different threading patterns! I contacted Scott's and they have it all worked out.
If you happen to have the 10-505 and  having a hard time screwing it on to one of Alan's ss fine threaded sleeve, no worries.
Stainless steel is much harder that brass, just keep the 10-505 star square to the sleeve and force it a little while turning it, the star will thread itself.

   I own an old 113 Senator (no letter) that has metal posts instead of the half-frame.  Therefore, would the sleeves you originally had in stock fit or should i order a different set?  Thanks!

a black side plate 113, correct?  the gear sleeve should fit just fine.  send me an e-mail to alantani@yahoo.com if you would like one.  the 113 in particular really benefits from this modification.

The jigmaster gear sleeve fits the pg255. You may need to sand down the pin a bit so it fits because pgs pin location is in a slightly different position, but all of mine work great (1-pg255 and 2-pg251)

There are 2 different sleeves for the jig master.  One is course and the other if fine thread.  You need to look at your current sleeves to determine which one you need.

To order, you can send Alan and email to AlanTani@yahoo.com or a PM here.

Okay, I'm way late on this one. Just look at the backside of your drag star. If it's a 10-60 - coarse thread, if it's a 10-505 - fine thread. If you want to change to a fine thread gear sleeve you'll need a new star, too.

Hey there,

Question: My old Senator (which I got used years ago) seems to be a mix of years. It's a post only (no half frames) but has some 113H features in the left side (no spring), etc.

My question is can I get the dimensions of the SS gear sleeve for a 113 (it does seem much shorter than those for the 113H) with the height of the spot the retaining pin goes to confirm which one I need? That way I could check and hopefully get one of the stainless sleeves for my little project. It does seem to have "fine" rather than coarse threads.

Lastly, I may some day do the Accurate/Newell SS gear upgrade and is there any reason why this would not be eventually possible with a SS sleeve for a 113?

Best, and thx for all replies.

the gear sleeve is the same for the jigmaster, the 112, the 112h and the 113.  it's the 98-60 and it's 1.165 inches tall and the diameter of the post is 0.402 inches.  send me a pm and i will ship one out.  they are $20.  thanks!  alan

I've got a doubt about upgrading a reel with a SS bridge sleeve.Being the steel harder than bronce alloy,doesn't it produce an increased wear of the dog? Wouldn't it be better to change also the dog? (I mean SS bridge sleeve and SS dog)  ???
I've only seen SS pinion yoke at Dawn's but never seen SS dogs somewhere.

I'm sure you're not the only one Lee.
If it wasn't for  down payments, I wouldn't be able to go to work.
You probably could figure this one out better than most of us. Find out how many dogs you've sold so far and how long it took.
I'm surprised that your connections wouldn't sell you a 2x2 or 2x4 sheets, you could tell them that there is a chance that you might buy the rest.
A 4x8 sheet will give you 32 sq ft, (1) sq ft should give you 100 dogs, maybe more but lets say 100.
A full 4x8 sheet should put out 3200dogs....that's a lot of dogs :-\.
There are close to 40 different dogs for Penn reels that you haven't done yet, What are your thoughts?


Title: Re: stainless steel gear sleeves - penn squidders, jigmasters, and smaller senators
Post by: Keta on November 16, 2012, 06:47:59 AM
The 15-500 dogs should be popular and 15-309 (112H) might be a good one.  It doesn't cost any more to make others and if they are the same thickness it can be done at the same time.  The water cuter will do small runs, as few as 6 so custom dogs are cheep/easy but I like to have the reel so I can test them before I send them out.  The big problem with ordering a full sheet is shipping large items to where I'm located and the sources for SS are at least 4 hour drive away.  I'll see if I can get a sheet put in with another shipment to save a few $.  I've been delaying a trip to Portland, this might push me to do it but I really do not like being in town and cities are far worse. 

When people pay me in advance I'm always worried that something will happen and they don't get their parts, I'd rather send the parts first then get paid.

Joel, If I have the dog I can draw it up and have it cut, material of the proper thickness is my main problem....well the pasture maggots are my main problem but that's another story.

I've repeatedly tried to install 114H gear sleeve, but it keeps binding when I insert the pin(s).

I notice that there are two pins included, one round and one with a flat.
The round binds the sleeve upon partial insertion.
The flat goes in too loose and the sleeve will only rotate approx 3/4 either direction before binding.

Suggestion?


Title: Re: stainless steel gear sleeves - penn squidders, jigmasters, and smaller senators
Post by: Alto Mare on August 09, 2013, 04:02:47 PM
What do you mean by going in too loose, does it come out on its own? Try installing the sleeve and don't worry about the binding. Place the handle and nut on the sleeve, just hand tight  the nut . Now hold the base of the bridge in your left hand and turn the handle with the right hand, don't be afraid about forcing it. Do this for about 20 times, remove the sleeve, clean and grease the post and put it back. You should be ok from there. If that doesn't work there are a few more things you could do, but try that first.

The pin with the flat, yes, too loose, slides in/out.
Put the other pin and followed your suggestion...  Thank you that worked, it is spinning freely now.
I didn't want to force it without inquiring first.

for some of the bridge posts, the slot was too low (or for my gear sleeve, the pin hole was too high!!!)  so that's why we had to make a pin that was shaved down.

I just picked up a 113H, and looking into the SS gear sleeve upgrade. I have seen posts regarding the upgrade, where Alan said it is not a necessity, and to fish the reel for a while before spending extra money on the SS sleeve.

When would the SS gear sleeve become necessary, due to physical limitations of the bronze sleeve, fishing 50-60# on a 113H or 60-80# line on a wide version?

Are the SS gear sleeves still running for $20 shipped?  Does Alan sell SS dogs for the 113H?

Thanks, Scott.


Title: Re: stainless steel gear sleeves - penn squidders, jigmasters, and smaller senators
Post by: Ron Jones on October 20, 2013, 04:29:26 PM
I have always found the SS gear sleeve beneficial. It just makes the reel feel more solid. Technically, if you fish 12 pounds or less drag, the factory bridge is fine. If you are fishing 50% line then you can get into situations where you want more than 12 pounds of drag. Alan recomends that everyone saves there money for bait and tackle until there is a true need for an upgrade. That is, of course, great advice because it came from the Guru himself. But I still really really really like SS gear sleeves.

If itís a used reel chances are the tip is starting to round if it was fished hard. If not upgrade the drags put some good line on it and fish ití. Unless u want to make it bad to the bone! with ss sleeve, gears, and double dogís Tank!!

what if you'll upgrade to a 7+1 drag stack in the future. you are also planning a dbl dog. my 2 cents go for a SS sleeve now. also if my memory serves me right Alan T. recommends to fish it 1st without the SS gears not the SS sleeve....

If you are stuffing 7 carbon fiber disks into a 113H main gear it is assumed you plan to exceed 20 pounds of drag. A SS gear sleeve is just about mandatory in that situation unless you fish so infrequently that replacing brass sleeves with brass sleeves is cheaper.

Ok, let me blow up this thread a little more...I PM'd Alan earlier today, but realized he gets bombarded with messages, so I decided to post my questions here as well hoping to get an answer.

Message sent to Alan:

 I had a question about the 113H SS gear sleeve...I picked up two 113H reels recently, and both seem to be a fine thread gear sleeves (10 threads), that fit star #10-349.

Q's:

Do you have a SS sleeve that will fit the 113H with a star #10-349?
     
Query...I see in the for sale section you have the 113H fine thread gear sleeve for sale, that also fits certain models of jigmasters (assuming that is the one I would need). *Aside from the thread difference, is the fine thread SS sleeve the same strength and thickness as the coarse thread SS sleeve for the 113H, or is it slightly "weaker" in regards to torque capability?

*I am asking because the picture in the for sale add appears as though the coarse thread SS sleeve is thicker and bulkier, but could be due to the offset angle in the picture. Just wanted to inquire before making a purchase.

Thank you for your time,

-Scott

Post by: Ron Jones on November 03, 2013, 09:44:59 PM
I haven't read the for sale listing, but the 113H and the Jigmaster have different gear sleeves. All 113H gear sleeves are the same thread and utilize the 10-349 star; the Jigmaster sized sleeves, which also fit the 112H Senator and the majority of Penn reels can be either fine or coarse threaded.

Ron

Thanks for the quick reply Ron. I assumed the 113H used a different sleeve than other reels, but wording confused me.

I was referring to Alan's first post in this thread (I realize the thread was started in 2008). Quote in original post in question: "for the jigmaster 500/501, the long beach series, the senator 111, 112, 112h, and 113, 113h, the mariner 49/149, you will be replacing part #98-60."

Confused me, and the reason I am inquiring; that wording would assume all those reels use the same gear sleeve and that all would fit the same replacement SS sleeve.

I guess I should just hit up Alan or Bryan and ask for a fine thread SS sleeve for a 113H? I have to know what I am getting before placing an order, especially for a part with specific fitment.

Hey Brian,

I installed the new SS gear sleeve....sweeet.  The guy forgot to bring his star, but I will see him this evening. 

Btw, I checked the schematics for the penn 3/0 and the jigmaster 505 HS.  It shows the handle nut part #23-60 to be the same on both reels.  I assume that they both share the same handle nut.  At the moment, it just seems that the original nut 23-60 is kind of tight for the SS gear sleeve.  I did not want to use the wrench to force it before checking.

I just wanted to reconfirm....are the teeth on the inside of the gear sleeve the same as the teeth on the handle nut Part 23-60?

Hi Franky,

The handle nut is same.  It will be tight for the first time you screw the handle nut. After that, it will mate smoothly.

Patrick, you may need to sand the retaining pin down due to the different position of the retaining knotch on the gear sleeve shaft.  I have used a fine file for this.  Grind slowly on one side and fit and file and fit and file until it fits.

Sometimes I think it would be much easier to just buy a 113H bridgeplate and the gear sleeve fits like a glove without any modifications, but I don't have that kind of money...so I just make it work.

The ID of a lot of Penn main gears are the same in order to use this sleeve, the OD is totally different in order to fit different sized reels and give different gear ratios.

This is where it gets confusing. The Jigmaster 500 and Surfmaster 250 have the same spool and sleeve.
I have several Jigmasters that I still need to upgrade. How do I know if I need a fine or coarse sleeve?
I need to look at them, I'm sure I probably have both. This is not an issue with the Surfmasters.

if it uses a jigmaster sleeve then why doesn't the jigmaster main gear work with it just currious
Even though it is nice to have tighter tolerance on custom parts than Penn stock parts., I have had to enlarge the ID on some custom gears to install them...not a big deal.

Not that confusing Bud.
This one will fit all the reels listed below and it only comes in coarse tooth:
https://www.mysticparts.com/PennParts/Custom/98-155AT.aspx (https://www.mysticparts.com/PennParts/Custom/98-155AT.aspx)
This one comes with fine tooth or coarse tooth:
https://www.mysticparts.com//PennParts/Custom/98-60AT.aspx (https://www.mysticparts.com//PennParts/Custom/98-60AT.aspx)
The sleeve ratchet on the 98-60AT is 3.25mm wider than the 98-155AT.
If you want to use a fine tooth sleeve on the Squidder or other Surfmasters, go for it, I see no problem with swapping the 98-155AT with the 98-60AT, just make sure you get yourself a 10-505.
The 98-155 will also work on the Jigmaster,...if you had to ;)

The Jig Masters with 10-60 Star are Fine Thread. I don't know the other Star number because I'm having a Senior Moment at this time.

Post by: Alto Mare on August 01, 2014, 08:58:55 AM
Ok, lets complicate things a little more ;D, the 10-60 star is coarse thread, the only fine thread that I know of is a 10-505 star.
Scott has some type of note on the 10-60 that I've never seen before, this is not related to fine or coarse tooth. If a star feels too snug on the stainless steel sleeve at first, I wouldn't worry about it too much, usually the stainless sleeve acts as a tap and works itself into the softer star material.

Post by: Lensters on August 01, 2014, 02:12:20 PM
Yeah, 10-60s are coarse, 10-505s are fine.  Most of the other small stars are also coarse.  I've had Jigmasters come in with all sorts of stars on them 10-49s are common on older ones.

If I change out a gear sleeve for a stainless one I always go with the fine thread version (98-505) so I buy a 10-505 star to go with it.  The reason for the fine thread is better drag control and easier to get to max drag.


Title: Re: stainless steel gear sleeves - penn squidders, jigmasters, and smaller senators
Post by: Alto Mare on August 01, 2014, 02:41:01 PM
Yeah Lensters, those with the larger star could be mine I've upgraded many. I see you like fine thread, just steer away from aluminum stars, as the ones selling on eBay.
Here are a few of the ones I like now:

I have installed new stainless gear sleeves on my 112 and 49 and wanted to put a 10-49 star on my 112. I ordered a new one from Scotts but it is more than just tight. I would like to run a tap through it but my complete automotive tap and die set does not have one to match. Does any one off hand know the thread size. It seems like an odd size.

the top thread on some of them got bent down a little.  if you force the star, you can "chase" the threads and it will work.  sorry for the hassle, you have one the few remaining gear sleeves left.  i can't get anyone locally to make them for me anymore.  i am last on everyone's list or priorities.   :-\

All right now, let's all keep in mind that I'm still learning here. I read all 11 pages of this post and fill I can now properly ask my questions. Maybe ?

 I have up graded 4 of my Penn 210's that have the 10-505 gear sleeve and star drag with the 6+1 Bryan Young drag stack and 2 of Alan's Power handles. Then I read this;
  "i only recommend a stainless steel gear sleeve if you INTEND to exceed 8 pounds of drag."
 The 6+1 drag stack exceeds 8 pounds by double. Now I need to rethink my plan.

 With the 10-505 fine thread sleeve, do I need to upgrade to the SS for the Sleeve, Main Gear, Pinion and Yoke ?
 Are these available yet ?
 My next question is, will the bridge assembly hold ?

 Thanks for all of yawls information. I have sure learned a lot for you all~!

 Mic

Well it can be confusing, however,  Alan just told me he is out of the fine thread gear sleeve. He does have lots of the coarse thread, which means switching stars.

But I think I'd fish the heck out of them until something fails,  then upgrade. 

(I do not follow my own advice, lol).  Seriously though, I have never had a Penn reel fail on me, ever.  Keep in mind I only fish Salmon, Butts, Rockfish, Lingcod and the occasional Shark outing, where we catch 20lb sharks max.  The Mud Marlin stress the reel more.

Hi Alan, sorry been away for a while. Our currency is taking such a beating against the US $ at the moment, that the ss sleeve would end up costing more than what i paid for the reel.

It fits but you have to file down the pin to almost half to make it fit right. Itís definitely simpler to just replace the bridge with a jigmaster bridge and SS gear sleeve.

Sorry guys but I'm new to upgrading Jigmasters I have a question I just got the GEN 2 coarse thread gear sleeve and washer set that was need my question is where do the washers go I put them both under the main gear SS first then the carbon but after I put my reel back together my drag star seems to not have the same amount of adjustment it did before I did the upgrade I also changed the drag washers to smooth drag


Title: Re: stainless steel gear sleeves - penn squidders, jigmasters, and smaller senators
Post by: handi2 on March 12, 2018, 04:44:03 AM
By using the stainless washer and thin Carbontex washer under the main gear it has raised the height just a tad. You will need to sand or file the sleeve just a little to get the drag star to fit and tighten correctly. Making the sleeve shorter.

After I put my reel back together my drag star seems to not have the same amount of adjustment it did before I did the upgrade I also changed the drag washers to smooth drag

   This is very common with drag upgrades. Especially when converting a stock HT-100 3-stack to a Smooth Drag 5-stack. The thinner washers just don't have the "squish" the thicker ones had, and it translates to the star feeling like it lost travel. This can be offset with some spring washer experimentation. I've ground down the spacing sleeve to allow for an extra spring washer, this increases the star travel. I kind of like the faster action of the thin washers myself...but it does take some getting used to.

cortez coversions is  making the gear sleeves for me now, so what i have is a fine thread squidder gear sleeve.  you'd need a $5 10-505 star and i'm not sure on the dog.  the only ones i have that would be remotely close would be the 112h/309 dog, the 500 dog and the 9 dog.  lee might know if any of these fits the 99.  i'll check.
