Yes, the dc spring and pawl. I have yet to dremel. I think I differs based on year.

torium 50 and trinidad 40/50 dog and spring upgrade

we've been upgrading trinidad and torium 16's, 20's and 30's for quite a while.  great reels.  you all know the mantra.  grease on all the screws, grease on all the non-exposed metal surfaces, spool bearings opened, cleaned and lubed with tsi 301, non-spool beaings packed with grease, carbontex drag upgrgades with cal's grease, a drop in upgrade to to the trinidad DC pawl (TGT 1303) and pawl spring (TGT 1304), and a oversized handle grip.  we have also been upgrading the trinidad and torium 40's and 50's in the same way.  the dog and spring upgrade is just a little different, so i thought i's better go over it.  

if you want to do the upgrade the same way we do, then start by googling tsi 301 and then order some directly from the company.  then order up a carbontex drag set and some cal's grease from smoothdrag.com.  if you don't want the spend the extra money for the tsi 301, just order a vial of reel x at the same time you are ordering up the drags and grease.  then call shimano at 877-577-0600 and order up a single pawl and spring set for the trinidad/torium 16/20/30 or a pair of pawls and springs for the trinidad 40/50.  get your tools and do a quick review of the rebuild post   http://alantani.com/index.php?topic=45.0 and the schematic for the reel  http://fish.shimano.com/media/fishing/SAC/techdocs/en/Conventional/07TOR50_v1_m56577569830641809.pdf

ok, now for the double dog system.  here is the bare frame for the torium 50 (key #1105).  



see that small ridge between the post supporting the pawl and the post for the screw?  



there are two on both sides.  



now look at what happens when you lay a pawl spring down on top of the post. yup, it won't lay flat.  and if you try to put a pawl on top of it, the pawl will bind.



ok, out comes the dremel.



grab your safety goggles and let's get to work.  



ok, that was quick and easy.  see the cut marks?







ok, now for the springs.  we are going to have to bend one of them.  now, when you get these springs, they will both look like the one on the left.  what you have to do with one of the springs is grab the curled tail and open it up until it looks like the one on the right, then cut off the curled tail.  



see how the curled tail was cut off the spring on the left?  



here is what the unbent spring looks like when it is in place.  this is the same for the trinidad/torium 16/20/30's.



here is the spring that is bent open and cut.  



lay the pawls in next.  note that the end of the spring that is bent "up" lays against the "outside" of the pawl.



install the anti-reverse pawl keepers (key# TGT 544) and screws (key# TGT305).



install the anti-reverse ratchet (key# TGT448).  



follow the tutorial on this board or on mine to reassemble the rest of the reel.  

just a note.  these reels will now be noisy as hell, but you will never have to worry about the handle going knuckle buster on you, even if the anti-reverse roller bearing fails.  i just don't have enough confidence in those ambassaduer-style dogs.  good hunting, gentlemen!

thanks for the help in getting me the parts from bryan... just checking, you do the exact same steps listed here to the Trinidad 50 right?  same parts and same process?  a friend of mine wants me to do his trinidad 50's.

Aloha Andrew,

Yes, same process for Toriums and Trinidadís, if necessary. Some reels you donít need to cut down the ridges between the screw posts and AR pawl post.  Itís test fit before I start cutting. Call or post up any questions with photos if you need help.

Aloha, Bryan
