Yesterday, after work I made my way to Kepong Tackle to look at some tackle as well as to kill some time. While driving there, I sent a sms to Ken, informing him that I would be going there. He did mention to me earlier that the had some IMA RO jigs with him. Anyway more on the IMA jigs in a different post. While smsing him, he told me to look for the roller bearing for Daiwa Caldia Kix 4000 reel.
To cut a long story short, I managed to get hold of the bearing and when I got back home, I stated to deassemble the roller on my Caldia Kix and change the bearing. Below are some pictures to show the steps involved.
Before you start to remove the roller, make sure all tools needed is around. Since the parts we would be dealing with is quite small, ensure that you have a sufficient and clear table to work on.
After completing all the above steps, make sure the roller is able to spin freely. If you find the roller is not moving, deassemble everything and try to do it again. Do take extra precaution as the bearings and washer are very small.
Happy trying, for more information on the bearing and detailed explaination, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am also on Yahoo Messenger most of the time, so feel free to drop me a message. Happy trying and happy modding.
