Hi Bryan,

Thanks for the pictorial. Just one question pls - how were you able to remove that left side bushing (key 40) from the sideplate? I've just serviced my 15 but could not remove that thing. Thanks.

Yes

I used a small deep socket to put over the bushing then tilted the bushing back and forth until it worked it's way out.  That's why there's grease marks on the top of the bushing...from the socket.

I've done the Penn Squall. They are neat little reels.  I would consider this reel a great replacement for a Newell 200 series.  Send me a PM when you have the time.

Ok, something is going on with PhotoBucket.  Will see what I can do to get this fixed.

These are perfect for Surf Casting here on the Gulf Coast, IMHO.  I've used them and sold over 1/2 dozen without any problems.  Great free spool, strong drag, and the mag system is more than sufficient for anything we throw around here.  Also loved the 525s, and the Okuma 230 Convector was another great reel in this same size and theme.

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.
