The idea is:
Ok...but...if the Bantam has Silent Tune with that bearing on the spool (and the.Chronarch doesnt has it), where does the Bantam has one bearing minus?
I compared both schematics, and have solved this bearing search everyone is talking about (I think), slow day in my life, lol Both the Chronarch MGL and the Bantam MGL has a bearing count of 8 + 1.
The Bantam MGL has added the silent tune bearing to the spool shaft, but has removed a bearing on the handle sideplate. If you have the schematics to the Chronarch MGL just follow the cast control cap and you'll see 2 bearings, one supports the pinion gear for x ship and one supports the spool shaft. Now look at the schematics for the Bantam following the cast control cap. They removed a bearing, and now they just have the one bearing for x ship.
So, because of this, when you cast the Bantam, the spool shaft is still only riding on 2 bearings, the palming side plate bearing and the silent tune bearing. When you cast the Chronarch MGL, the spool shaft is only riding on 2 bearings, but the bearings are further apart. Does that make sense?
Also, because of this, when you engage the cast control thumb bar on the Bantam, the pinion gear would have to slide in and out of the one bearing under the cast control cap.
Hope this helps out, if I'm wrong, let me know, just trying to solve this for anyone who cares.
