Title: How many wrenches is this worth???
Post by: broadway on April 06, 2011, 08:19:13 PM
Hey Crew,
Check this out... I never saw this before.  I'm sure some of you have, but why didn't anyone post it.  ???  I just went through my calcutta 400te with no issues.  The best parts about the website are you can blow it up and the resolution is great, tells you what and what not to do, and if you screw up you can see how the reel looked before you messed with it.  It's a must if you haven't ever checked it out, though not as fun or thorough as some of you guys it makes it possible.  How many wrenches for all those tutorials, Alan??? ;D ;D ;D

Here's the link: http://fish.shimano.com/publish/content/global_fish/en/us/index/customer_service0/reel_maintenance_instructions.html
Hope this helps,
Dom

Hey Dom,  I know this is an old posting, but I have a 400TE that's never been taken apart while I've owned it.

The previous owner was an Alan Tani friend so it may not even need service, but I don't even want to look without some ammunition.

Can you point me in the direction of what you were looking at back then?

Linky no worky now.  Thanks, Ran

Ran,
   When I first got the reel I opened it up to change the drags and great innards, but wasn't willing to take it apart with all of those small parts with these big sausage fingers of mine.  I sent it to Keith at OCD reel repair. He has her singing the sweet song of a fine tuned piano.
Shimano's site has a good schematic and how to break down a round bait caster such as the 400te.
I love my 400te!
Good luck bro,
Dom
