Default the sorceror's apprentice.....

accurate boss extreme 30 narrow - regreased the drag washers, cleaned the spool bearings out with carb cleaner and relubed them with TSI 301, packed all the non-spool bearings with yamaha grease, pressed out the old rusted plain steel anti-reverse roller bearing and pressed in TWO stainless steel anti-reverse roller bearings, replace the reel seat screws with No. 2 phillips head screws that were slight longer so that the screws have more "bite" and won't pull out like in the post below, cleaned and relubed everything else and slapped it back together. the best part is that the kid from the local shop did all the work. i just sat here and kibitzed. i also got him through a couple of rough spots. it took him two hours and this was the first time he'd ever worked on an accurate before.

the reason for all of this? well, for one, the single plain steel AR bearing was rustted and was going to fail. the freespool also stunk. but now that this work is all done, you are looking at the jigging reel with the most powerful instant anti-reverse system in the world. i have made a half dozen conversions like this. it's not cheap, but the benefits are certainly there.

Good for you, Alan. I'm sure you can use the help.
And, congratulations, Joey. You will be learning from the master. I'm sure you will see one of my beat up reels come across your bench one day.
