Hello everyone,

My first post here!

I am having trouble getting out the left side bearing from the left cap.
The reel was not in good shape when I got it opened!
I am with the Army Corps of Engineers in Okinawa and found the reel in a shop. I have heard how good they are and also need to find out when the full 113H kit from Pro Challenger will be available again. I need 2 of them.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

if you have a bearing that is badly stuck, sometimes you have to pull out the bearing and cup as a unit, remove any o-rings, and torch it until it literally glows.  then you can get in with a "bearing puller" and wiggle it out.  these can really test your skills, and patience!

I may have all of the parts you need. I could also help you remove the bearing from the cup if you need assistance. Should be no problem with APO. I have shipped several items to Okinawa in the past.

I have 3 sets of prochallenger double dog bridges, and 3 prochallenger ss gear sets remaining. No gear sleeves.  I personally would use the stock brass gear sleeves because I have seen the parts gauling against one another because I believe the same stainless steel is being used for all of the parts. Let me know.

Thanks

Oh, by the way, the progear gear sleeves will not work on these bridges. The securement pin is located in a different location.

Welcome aboard!
If you are still having trouble removing that bearing you could send it my way and i'll get it out for you.
Your cost would be shipping only. Sorry I would usually pick that tab as well, but have been out of work for a month and need to make adjustments.
 just send me a personal message and I'll take care of the rest.

Enjoy your stay,

I removed bearings the same way but packed grease in the hole.

Hi Jay, I would gladly service the reel and build up as needed/requested. My backlog is 20 reels at the moment  it would have been less but I bruise my ribs and cannot put too much pressure on my movements. Let me know if you can wait a spell.

  My chat is about using heat, flame the bearing and cup area several times.  the heat and cooling can be helpful in breaking the bond between the dissimilar metals.  maybe add some solvent when cooled and maybe you can make an l shaped tool and get behind the race and pry and pull?  Sometimes these bearings can be stubborn.  you will sacrifice the bearing and help youself.   good luck. Huh?
