this is the bearing off the base of pinion which shimano named X-ship technology. it has seized up, looking at it having rubber seal i attempt to peel seal off and try flush it but unfortunately it could not be saved.

clutch pin, spring and clutch trigger taken off the reel before main body goes to wash.

main gear after washed, this is the part on you get what you paid for, i was stunned by the condition considering on most reel this should be the first gear that need to be replaced.

after cleaning most of the salt crust out, i notice that most of the main body has been eaten away, after much thought it is decided that main body replacement is necessary.

upon assemble and test, most part of the internal are fine except for the bearing the support pinion, the shimano so called x-ship technology.

anti reverse trigger, simple design and reliable.

all internal part are salvaged from old body apart from the new pinion gear

all internal assembled with new pinion gear.

clutch restored, in my opinion this is the best clutch system ever made only for stella fe, fd , vanquish and stella sw

rotor attached...... phew reel reel rotation is mint :banana:

this is just to show the difference on high end daiwa vs high end shimano on sealing their reel.
rubber seal vs magseal.

steez and exist share the same magseal system to certate.

breakdown on pinion seal that shimano applied only on stella with bearing to increase smoothness. a floating shaft with little space between pinion gear and shaft makes them extremely rigid.

this is the way shimano seal their high end reel with rubber ring on a spacer that will be locked to rotor with retainer to hold them together.
