Go on the NJ forums to see if anybody has the wrench and the seal pushing tool you could borrow. You can get the o-rings on ebay. Better yet, take it to fishermanhq for service in the winter since you can't take out the main seal and pinion seal without the proper tool.

Ebay has one person selling and it is a bit overpriced. I borrowed a wrench from a friend but dont want to be a bother anymore so would like to buy my own. I understand the main seal cant be self serviced, i think my seals are fine at the moment in my 100 and 150. But thanks.

If you think the seals are over priced, wait till you see the rest of the kit. :laugh:

I have a pair of Channel Locks with plastic teeth a friend gave me, I haven't tried them but I'm sure they would work. About the main seal, I have a tool to remove the main seal and when I removed mine from my 8yr. old VS200 at the time it looked better than new. This was over 7yrs. ago and I haven't touched it since.

Im not touching the main seal at this time. I will try to buy the wrench from my buddy so I can do some light service to my reels over the winter. They are dunked almost every trip. I just want to check if theyre okay. Thanks.

Bring some beer and a hockey puck to someone who has some power tools like a drill press, plunge router, etc, he should be able to make wrench in short order.

Pure Fishing, am I the only one that thinks they just destroy a decent brand when they buy them?
