I got this reel and serviced it a couple months ago.  Since I took pictures, might as well share with this group. 

It was clean on the outside and appeared well taken care of.






After removing the side plate, it appeared also very clean inside.  It had been serviced with some blue grease in the past, but it had dried considerably.


It had one of those simple oscillation arms secured with a non-threaded pin.


You can see it was clean underneath all the gearing.






This part known as the pinion retainer fastens the rotor to the housing.


This reel cleaned up with very little effort.




It has a hard fiber washer at the bottom and two teflons above.


Decided to try Super Lube instead of Penn blue grease.


Time to reattach the rotor and reinstall the main gear.






Almost finished.






These reels weigh 11.75 oz, line capacity is 200 yd 8 lb mono or 125 yd of 10 lb mono.  They are readily available on ebay for 6 bucks up to 10 bucks, don't remember what I paid for this one, doubtful if it was over $10.  The schematic lists part no. 37 and part no. 42 as metal bearings, but they're actually teflon bushings. Definitely a B-grade spinner.  I wouldn't want to test this reel with a steady diet of catching fish over 7-8 pounds, but it would fare well with panfish and eater size channel cats, walleye, and river fishing for smallmouth.

Nice look at a little recognized reel.

Checking schematics, there is also a smaller 100X, and two larger reels, the 160X and 250X.  All schematics list metal bearings instead of teflon bushings on the main gear and sideplates.  Huh?  Perhaps mine is a later model?

That's a fairly sturdy little reel for its line class. I have a couple of later model Daiwa Hardbodyz that have a bearing on each side of the main gear and an A/R roller bearing on the pinion, but the Hardbodyz do not envelope the whole body. They have two pieces of hard plastic at the rear of the reel that are not desirable at all.
The way they built these older bodies are much better.

Might as well post the insides of a Daiwa B-130.

   I've noticed the 130X, A-130, and B-130 all seem to be basically the same reel under the hood. The biggest difference appears to be the outside appearance. The early B-130 schematic(1975) shows a lackluster drag set up, while all the others use a three stack system. I only have the A-130RL, but it's a decent reel. The quantity of these reels out there being bought and sold proves they have some degree of staying power. Cool
