Since I started here, I've picked up quite a few of these Silver Series and Regal-D series reels-after fishing with the first one I got I just really like them.

After seeing The Fishing Hobby's video on replacing the nylon bushings in his reel, I did the same. It doesn't really smooth the reel up, but a few of the reels I have acquired had worn or very brittle bushings, and two of them are mix-master parts reels that I just didn't have all the bits for.

Anyway-Daiwa Reels Ball Bearing Interchange:

Silver Series/Regal-D:

130X - use 7x14x3.5mm ball bearings, type "687" for main gear only.

160X - use 7x14x3.5mm ball bearings, type "687" for main gear only.

1000X - use 7x14x3.5mm ball bearings, type "687". 3 bearings, pinion and main gear.

1300X - use 7x14x3.5mm ball bearings, type "687" for main gear, 9x17x5mm Type "689-ZZ" or "689-2RS" for pinion.

1600X - use 7x14x3.5mm ball bearings, type "687" for main gear, 9x17x5mm Type "689-ZZ" or "689-2RS" for pinion.

2600X - use 9x17x4.5mm type "689" for main gear. 9x17x5mm type "689-ZZ" or "689-2RS" for pinion bearing.

4000X - use 9x17x4.5mm type "689" for main gear. Have not found correct replacement pinion bearing yet.

7000X - use 9x17x4.5mm type "689" for main gear. Have not found correct replacement pinion bearing yet.

The Daiwa coil spring drag stacks are very similar in construction to each other. They mostly use a 6-washer stack, 3 frictions and 3 steels, and most of the mid-size reels use the same size washers.

Smooooth Drag Carbontex washer replacement:

100X/A-100RL - Modify 3pcs washer #13. Cut OD from 21.28 to 13mm OD.

1300X - Use 3pcs Washer #5

1600X - Use 3pcs Washer #5

2600X - Use 3pcs Washer #5

4000X - Use 3pcs Washer #9

7000X - Use 3pcs Washer #9

Some Daiwa reels in this series have a disc spring drag. The disc spring drags have a single friction, a single steel, and a flat disk spring. The 1000X is a notable example.

1000X - Modify Washer #54 by reducing OD from 33.8mm to 29.8mm. Use 1pcs.

Updated the original post to include the Daiwa 4000X and D4000 reels. I haven't pulled the pinion bearing down yet on a 4000 or 7000, but this 4000X is full of burnt peanut butter so I'll clean all the bearings and try to find the proper one to put in this list.
