Boca bearing Kit#FR-62CY Ceramic bearings totally unecessary in a Squidder

$42.95.

Make sure you can remove the bearing covers from the adjuster and the sideplate before you order or have them removed by someone who knows how. Not trying to be a know it all but they can be a b-tch. Getting the bearings out of the carriers if they have been in there for 20 or 30 years can also try your patience.

I guess it would acutally be the adjuster and the bearing that I need (assuming that is if that's on the LS plate). I tightend the bearing down way too much and now it makes a scraping noise when the spool spins or when the handle is cranked.

Go to the second sticky at the beginning of this forum and look at the photos Alan has posted regarding some home made tools to do exactly what you are trying to accomplish. While he is not picturing a Penn Squidder you will get the ideawink.gif .

I've had luck with a blow torch.

 

Once you get the LS bearing part #40-140 (for a squidder 140), put it in a metal vise. Sometimes they will have a bearing shield that will need to come out before the bearing will come out. This typically pry's out with a flat head screwdriver.

 

I then use a tool like in ******'s post to pull straight up, while applying heat/torch to the bearing cover.

 

Haven't had one stuck yet.

 

And I agree, ceramic bearings are way overkill for a squidder.
