G'day lyt,
May want to compare the schematics, now that you have your 900 apart:

the gear sleeve is different.  plus the handle and the handle nut.

Hi Alan,

ok so for the complete drag stack, which includes:....

4 metal washers you sent
5large+1small drag washers
1 OEM metal washer (the thinner one)

I get 13.20mm    is this ok?   on your tutorial it says 12.22mm   

i am assuming you do include the small washer in the stack.....right?

there should be one medium slotted metal washer, one medium keyed metal washer and one super thick keyed metal washer.  i think either keyed metal washer will work.  can you let us know?  thanks!  alan

Yes!   Apart from the corrosion issue i am dealing with now.....   the reel drag itself seems to be AMAZING....I can almost not even hold the spool against the drag.   I ended putting in the thinner washer that had no nubs on it....  however unlike the tutorial.... the stack was 13.20mm (this was measured with ALL WASHERS metal and carbon).   I will be able to test the exact drag shortly, but my scale is not up to this one....

I did have one other comment and question about these reels.   One other poster above seems to have had the same issue identifying between the 900H and the 910.   I have the same issue.  I have heard that Daiwa does update their reels so i am not really sure if these diagrams are accurate to my older reel.

I will detail this a bit better:

Comparing the two diagrams that i printed out......

1)  I have the HUGE handle, which led me to believe I had a 910.
2)  MOST of the parts when I disassembled it were like the 900H especially since it had the #67/68 parts as the rod clamp #16/17 which is on the 900H
3)  My reel did not have Part #60 which is why my handle is possibly not completely right.  
4)  the 910 handle has two holes, the hole at the very end is much larger, but the other hole seemed to fit with the screw i had.
5)  Mine had part #63 which on the 900H diagram should be there...it is not on the 910.  but this is what is messing me up.....its the wrong part for the handle.



So here is my question:   if my set plate is the 900H but I'm trying to use the huge handle, is this an issue?    there is a small gap between the start drag and the handle....it doesnt look right....






help ?

ok....just got off the phone with Daiwa....

it seems the huge handle was an option....like previously stated....   call a ROCK COD special....i guess you just use the handle hole that is NOT on the end....  i dont think there is any way to use it since the shaft on the set plate of the 900H is longer or shorter (I cant remember).....even with that #60 on the 910 diagram.   i am assuming the #60 is what allows you to place the handle at the end.....that would give you some SERIOUS cranking MAN!

Great site Alan, thanks for the resource.

I just finished my first season with the Daiwa 900H w/drag upgrade. The reel works well and has plenty of drag for sharks here in Maine. I do have an issue that I hope someone can help out with. I fish with the reels in free spool, with the clicker on while drift fishing for sharks. My issue is that the Daiwa reels have a much weaker clicker than my Penn 115s and I experienced some ugly backlashs during quick pickups.

Does anyone have any suggestions to the weak clicker? I've tried bending the clicker spring, but it doesn't seem to help much.

Thanks


alantani

bending the clicker spring in is the only way,  they never seem to work right.

lyt, the gap you see is fine.  before installing a longer handle arm, try a bigger grip first.  i think you will find that it will work fine for you.

This reel is the only reel that I have had a handle twist off on, sucks when their is 300+ feet of line out. Is their a stronger sleeve in the Daiwa catalog that can be used on this reel?

I already had an answer from Daiwa and they promised me that they will send for free the click claw.
I will let you know about this.
