Re: Shimano spinning reel annoyance

The shim is only for the drive gear. This adjusts the drive gear depth into the pinion gear. Adding a shim to the pinion will change the position of the pinion slightly and it is not advised. If you have never tried to adjust a spinning reel I would advise you not to attempt it. Spinning reels can b...

Re: Shimano spinning reel annoyance

A little play is normal and needed with any ring and pinion type gear. Yes they can be adjusted, but due to tolerances in the frames, gears, bearings, etc there can be play. Adjusting the gears with shims is not something I would recommend for the beginner. Each reel model has a set of specification...

Re: Chronarch MGL clicking sound

There could be a ding or damage to one of the teeth, either drive or pinion. It could have happened during the cleaning process, assembly, disassembly. If you have isolated it to the gears I would go ahead and replace them.

Re: Star drag and handle options, Scorpion XT?

I believe the star was painted to match the body on that model. The star for the Curado E is discontinued. You may have to look at the aftermarket places like ZPI and others.

Re: BNT4631-Idle gear pin

There are issues with the website. We had a position to fill that handles the small parts and changes. That person is supposed to update the web team to revise the schematic. Many times things slip through the cracks. In the future just post here and ask me, or call our customer service number. 877-...

Re: Chronarch MGL clicking sound

It's not needed on the casting reels. We suggest it for spinning reel drive and pinion, and of course if it has a variable oscillation gear that needs to be lined up as well. Noises are hard to diagnose over the web without a video. Even with a video it can be difficult. I doubt it's the X-Ship bear...

Re: BNT4631-Idle gear pin

There is a running change to the part and the new number is BNT5310. Sometimes our bright ideas are for a reason. And there are times when we improve the bright idea and make it better and brighter. We even change the part numbers for time to time so you can continue to complain about the brilliance...

Re: Does Shimano say to grease or oil replacement felt drags?

The service centers have all the grease as we sent it to them. They also have a list of all the grease to use by part type for each series of reels.

You can always call us directly to order any lubricants. 877-577-0600

ACE-2 just like the rest of the low profile reels we make. ACE-0 for the cross carbon drag washers.

A lot of the time the numbers are on the guide. They are just really hard to see because they are so small.
