I dunked my old school diwa black gold 15.  Today I took it apart to clean it all went well it tried to remove the main,shaft Bering ring it was frozen. I couldn’t get it out.  The reel doesn’t feel particularly smooth.  I think the bearing is on its way out.  How do I get it out? With out wrecking the reel?   Pb blaster?

Corrosion x soaking overnight or a couple of days should do it. Then place in a vice put a screw driver on each side and a board over the screw drivers and tap downward. If not, grind off the bearing with a dremmel cutting wheel and replace it with a new bearing. I have cut off many bearings in older reels just to save time. The bearing is probably shot anyway.

And wear safety goggles!
