 Post subject: daiwa sealine 900h/910h rebuild
PostPosted: Sat Feb 07, 2009 10:50 pm 
as old as they are, the daiwa 900h and 910h are still very popular among big fish fishermen. here's your reel.

Image

what were going to do is change out the old 3-stack of drag washers to a new 5-stack of carbon fiber with thinner metal washers.

Image

we're going to install a bigger handle grip.

Image

and change out the rod clamp.

Image

first, let's back out each one of the left side plate screws (key #'s 2 and 3).

Image

note that the three screws on top are shorter than the two screws on the base.

Image

add a bead of grease to each screw hole and zip the screws back in.

Image

now, lets back out all of the right side plate screws (key #'s 51 and 52).

Image

the reel separates easily into three pieces, the spool, frame and right side plate.

Image

lube the left side plate bearing.

Image

take an old toothbrush and clean up the inside of the frame.

Image

i'm going to install a 6/0 penn graphite clamp.

Image

Image

ok, the frame is done.

Image

let's clean up the spool a little.

Image

and back into the frame it goes.

Image

now, on to the right side plate.

Image

remove the handle lock screw (key #66).

Image

remove the handle handle screw (key #65) using a a handle wrench from a shimano tld 20/30 two speed.

Image

Image

remove the handle (key #64).

Image

remove the handle washer (key #63).

Image

remove the star drag (key #62).

Image

remove the spacing sleeve (key #61).

Image

remove the tension springs (key #58 and 60) and drag spring washer (key #59).

Image

back out the three set plate screw A's (key #45) and set plate screw B (key #46).

Image

the set plate assembly (key #29) will drop out as a unit.

Image

here's the old stack of drag washers compared to the new stack.

Image

here's the height of the old drag stack.

Image

here's the height of the new stack.

Image

slap a thick coat of cal's drag grease on every carbon fiber drag washer and rebuild the drag stack.

Image

Image

Image

install the spacing sleeve (key #61).

Image
place two fingers over the four set plate screws.

Image

Image

the set plate should lay down cleanly into the right side plate.

Image

Image

flip the right side plate over.

Image

tighten down the set plate screws (key #'s 45 and 46).

Image

install the tension springs (key #58 and 60) and drag spring washer (key #59).

Image

Image

install the star drag and turn it down until it is well past the shoulders of the drive shaft.

Image

install the handle washer (key #63).

Image

now to switch out the smaller stock grip for a larger kolekar grip. first, let's drill out the rivet.

Image

Image

Image

Image

the new grip bolts right on.

Image

tighten down the handle screw (key #65) using the shimano wrench.

Image

install the handle lock screw (key #66).

Image

the right side plate is done.

Image

lube the spool shaft.

Image

lube the set plate bearing (key #28).

Image

install the right side plate assembly.

Image

install the right side harness lug (key #18) and rod brace lug (key #19).

Image

install the right side plate screws (key #'s 51 and 52).

Image

so here is our completed reel. you now have a full sized handle grip, a stack of 6 penn drag washers (1+5) and a new clamp. the driving force behind this rebuild was the need to increase the drag range of this reel. a stack of four drag washers (1+3) only delivers 20 pounds of drag. that is way too low for a reel this large. by cutting thinner metal drag washers, i could use a set of five #6-116 penn ht-100 drag washers inside the gear and a single #6-114 drag washer underneath the gear. this stack of drag washers will deliver 30 to 35 pounds of drag, bringing the reel up to it's full potential.

Image

to convert a sealine 910h to a 900h, you need a 900h set plate (part #783-3302), a 900h handle screw (part #781-2301), a handle set screw (part #353-2811) and a 900h handle (part #748-1101). you can call daiwa at 562-802-9589 and order these parts. the total should be somewhere around $30. add to that a 6/0 kolekar grip for $33 http://alantani.com/index.php?topic=158.0 and a drag washer set for $25 http://alantani.com/index.php?topic=153.0 .

Image

the other alternative is to cut the handle arm of the 910h a little shorter. the set plate for the 910h is quite a bit shorter than the 900h.

Image

Image

there you go. great reel, and a much better value than the 9/0 penn senator 115L.
