Quote from: paal on August 09, 2012, 12:29:21 PMVery nice John! No need for a lot of pictures, servicing this reel is probably not for beginners anyway. They are better off practising on e.g. a Spheros first I tried to use this little guy to oil the line roller, the needle fits just inside the "oil cap tube":But it was difficult to assess how much oil actually went in. Probably too much, because it was oozing oil when I fished it afterwards.... I also noted when taking the roller assembly apart, that there were "voids" on both sides of the line roller bearing. I'll keep an eye on whether water can get in. I'll bet it can on the "oil tube" side, not sure about the other side of the bearing. An option might be to fill the voids with marine grease, at least it will minimize the amount of water that can get stuck in there. Time will tell, for now I'll just be inspecting for water from time to time. And give it the regular fix of oil through the port tight lines,Paal
