Despite the wealth of information in this thread, I need more help with the bearing packer, which I got because it seemed a cool addition to my new hobby.

I got some new bearings for my avet mxl from Dawn at smoothdrag.  The original avet bearings are sealed.  To my newby eyes, the smoothdrag ones look shielded.  All the better; should be easier to pack without opening them.  Well, a few gobs of grease and several hours later, I am ready to throw in the (greasy) towel.

One thing I may have learned:  push the grease into the packer slooowwwly.  Doing that, the brake bearing oozed some grease around the shield, and I declared victory.  The drive shaft and pinion bearings were another matter.  The only grease appearing on the exposed side of those bearings was oozing around the inner and outer diameters.  I am definitely using the right packer (English, not metric).  I am afraid more pressure holding the two packer halves together would trash the bearing races (and I've already got a worn out pinion bearing, thanks).

Any ideas?  Thanks.

BTW, I removed, cleaned, and greased the MC assembly on this reel.  No trick, of course.  Getting it back in the reel took some effort.  There are a tiny ball and spring that work with the dial detent.  The magnets keep wanting to pull the ball and spring out of position as you put things together.  If there is interest, I will post a little tutorial, though the wizards on this board may have figured it out long ago.

Hi Alan,

1st of all, great site.  It has been very helpful in maintaining my reels for long-range trips.  How can I purchase the bearing packer, adaptor and needle kit?  Thanks.

Got my kit last week, photos don't do it any justice. It's VERY well made with excellent tolerance. Showed it to my co-worker, he didn't even know what it was. The first comment he made, was regarding how impressed he was with the machining.
