Quote from: Wolli on July 05, 2020, 12:34:43 AMA few weeks ago got a brandnew C 5000XG for control maintenance. Removed the three screws of the Roller Clutch and lifted the part up in the usual way.....Never do that!!!! At the same moment all inner parts, the cover plate, cylinders and springs fall out.... The cover plate is loose and not fixed to the clutch!After one hour i gave up to reassemble the parts and I ordered two new ones. One as reserve.The plates of the new Roller Clutches were also loose. So no manufacturing fault as i learned later.The secret to putting the Roller Clutch back on, the spool shaft must point downwards!!! Then hold the part well and turn the reel upright and secure with the three screws.How Shimano technicians came up with such an idea remains their secret....Yes I made the same mistake (once) of doing just this. Now I'm waiting for a new assembly I had to order after I could not get the assembly to work when trying to put it back together after never having seen how it went together in the first place. So now I am a little nervous about putting the new assembly back on the reel. I understand about facing the spool shaft down when you mount the assembly, what I'm troubled by is the need to align the assembly with two tits that stick up and mate into two holes in the assembly and at the same time assuring the shaft bushing is aligned with spool shaft so that you don't push out the shaft bushing possibly disturbing the bearings in the assembly. Since the shaft bushing is a separate part I'm assuming that it does not come with the assembly (have not received the assembly yet) and am wondering how the company ships this assembly without it coming apart. Since you have had this wonderful experience was hoping you could give some detailed advice as to how the assembly comes and how to assure proper alignment while sliding the assembly on. That loose plate sure makes it a problem. Any help you can be would be greatly appreciated. Steve
