Title: Back Ordered Shimano Parts
Post by: Keta on February 08, 2010, 09:15:10 AM

I must have a Trinidad 30 that clicks but Shamano won't have the parts until June.  Is there a place where I can get one each of the TGT 1303 (Anti-Reverse Pawl) and TGT 1304 (Anti-Reverse Pawl Spring) before mid March?

Have you ever disabled the clicker drag on a Trini 30?  I cut a length of pen barrel to fit and replaced part TGT 0317 (BR gear A) with it.  I will get a piece of Orcot or UHMW and make a real spacer when I tear the reel down to upgrade the anti reverse pawl.

i just spoke to shimano.  doug confirms the june back order date.  i am going to see about getting some springs made.  at one point, a company had quoted me 100 pieces at $4 each.  i figured that would be a bit much.  i will check again to see if i can find a cheaper price anywhere.  alan
