hi Bryan, nice job! but i have one question?? What size was that deep socket you used to pull the brass bearing retainer 9/32 deep 12 point? i need to do a tear apoart and repair of the same reel, but in a hotel room in S.C near fort jackson, for my oldest son who is coming up from Fla to meet us for my youngest sons graduation from Army Boot camp on 6/1/17! He says the reel makes a grinding sound that gets louder as he turns up the magnet level. I have experience with the older 525 mag, which has a bearing not shown on the diagrams from penn. It needed replacement and i measured it and got it from Boca, it was a small 3 by 12 MM. I believe it supported the pinion but i cant remember now, but Tony from penn did help me on it, say 3 years or so ago
I knew someone would ask an excellent question that I couldn't answer. I cannot recall. I'm sorry. I have not had a Squall in for service since I posted the tutorial. I suspect it was a 8 or 10 mm deep socket or standard equivalent.

Correction. One of the pics shows a 9/32" socket. It's a 6 point because that is all I have. A 12 point would work just as fine. The points are contacting the tube anyway. 12 point would probably be better.

Cheesy I talk with every part I send out and each reel I repair so that they perform at the top of their game. Cheesy
