 Post subject: shimano calcutta 250A rebuild
PostPosted: Tue Feb 10, 2009 2:47 am 
when i first started salmon fishing, i started with a penn 113h trolling 2.5 pound lead on a sinker release. when i started fishing with jacky douglas on the "wacky jacky," we were mooching. the ultimate mooching reel at that time was considered to be the shimano calcutta 250. it was a great reel then, it is still a great reel now.

Image

Image

here's a link to the schematic.

http://www.mikesreelrepair.com/schemati ... _ct250.pdf

it's simple to open up this reel. just back out the two right side plate bolts (key #1698).

Image

the reel breaks down easily into three pieces, the frame assembly, the spool and the right side plate assembly.

Image

put a drop of lube in left spool bearing (key #194). this bearing measures 3x10x4. if it needs replacing, the bearing retainer (key #32) is easily removed.

Image

clean up the spool shaft a little.

Image

let's put the spool assembly back into the frame and set it aside.

Image

now for the right side plate assembly.

Image

remove the handle nut plate screw (key #795) and handle nut plate (key #1692).

Image

remove the handle nut (key #797).

Image

remove the handle (key #1716) and friction washer (key #799).

Image

remove the star drag (key #1573).

Image

remove the star drag spacer (key #1289)

Image

remove the drag spring washers (key # 15).

Image

remove the two right side plate screws (key #191).

Image

remove the right side plate assembly (key #1574). note that the right side plate bolts (key # 1698) stay with the right side plate.

Image

the right side plate bearing (key #194) is rusted and will have to be replaced.

Image

remove the cast control cap (key #1209) and cast control spacer (key #9).

Image

this bearing also measures 3x10x4.

Image

install the new bearing (key #194), cast control cap (key #1209) and spacer (key #9).

Image

the "anti-reverse" roller clutch bearing (key #1207) works fine. let's soak it with corrosion x and then clean it out with an old rag. pull the rag through and then twist both clockwise and counter-clockwise.

Image

let's pull the main gear.

Image

we're going to upgrade with drag system to carbontex.

Image

here are all the parts, cleaned up and in line. on top is the set plate assembly (key #1221). the middle row shows (left to right) the roller clutch inner tube (key #1206), the key washer (key #1211), the drag washer C (key #1212), the drive gear (key #1213), and drag washer A (key #1214). the lower row shows our new carbontex drag washers.

Image

take a quick look and make sure the anti-reverse ratchet (key #1215) is properly oriented and seated.

Image

slap a generous coat of cal's grease on carbontex drag washers.

Image

install smaller carbontex drag washer.

Image

install the drive gear (key #1213).

Image

install the larger carbontex drag washer.

Image

install the key washer (key #1211).

Image

install the roller clutch inner tube (key #1206).

Image

install the right side plate assembly (key #1574).

Image

install the two right side plate screws (key #191).

Image

install the two drag spring washers (key #15) in a "()" configuration.

Image

install the star drag spacer (key #1289) gray side up.

Image

install the star drag (key #1573) and turn it down until it clears the shoulders of the drive shaft (key #1299).

Image

install the friction washer (key #799).

Image

install the handle assembly (key #1716).

Image

install the handle nut (key #797).

Image

install the handle nut plate (key #1692).

Image

install the handle nut plate screw (key #795).

Image

add a small amount of grease to the screw holes in the frame.

Image

lube the spool shaft and right spool bushing.

Image

find the clutch plate (key #1233). this is the "in gear" postion.

Image

push the clutch plate down to the "free" position.

Image

the clutch bar (key #1316) is now in the "free" position.

Image

push it to the "in gear" position.

Image

back off the cast control cap (key #1209) a couple of turns.

Image

the right side plate assembly (key #1574) should now seat easily.

Image

gently tighten down the pair right side plate bolts (key #1698) until the bolts seat, then give it another half turn so that it is snug. tighten these down too much and the heads will snap right off. been there.......

Image

check the freespool.

Image

lube the worm shaft (key #1714). this would also be a good time to remove the pawl cap (key #1239) and lube the line guide pawl (key #42)

Image

and done!

Right on time, Alan!!

I acquired a 251 from ebay last week and will be reworking it back to like new condition, this will help a great deal.

I would have never thought about changing the drag washer, but I will NOW!
