So, first time changing out parts/ hot roding a reel so here it is.
Took my old 40/ special I’ve had for ever. 20 years or so??
Anyway, opened her up went with a 4-1 gear
Bryan young UU 7 drag stack
Stainless sleeve
Stainless yolk
Double dog thingy
And a yellowtail special frame from Randy.
Can’t wait to put some line on her and test the drag out.
Thanks mystic
Randy
And the rest of y’all that post up the vids and threads for info

Cheers and stay safe.

Good job on the upgrade! Hey, I called it a “ THE 113H REEL / TANK” about ten years ago and we’re still upgrading... most from there.

Now that you’ve completed one, hold on to your wallet cause things COULD get out of hand from here 🙂.

Enjoy that reel!

You are right, a bigger handle would do it!

Wow thanks folks. I’m definitely hooked now for sure. This reel feels better than any of my newer ones. Just feels solid.
Definitely in the hunt for a new handle and knob for it. I really enjoyed modding this reel. I’ve got a 500s and a 500 I want to do before I do the 6/0 lol.
Cheers

Hey Mourice,
I only see one pic of the right side with the bridge in it.
Can you post some more pics of the completed reel?

pull the shields off, clean them out with carb cleaner and lube with tsi321. That should do it. I don't think replacing them with high end bearings is worth the cost,maybe a little better but not much

+1  What Swami says.  I've got 6-7 113h variations, plus ProGears with those bearings, and only bought 2 new bearings.
