 Post subject: shimano tekota 700 rebuild
PostPosted: Sun Apr 19, 2009 9:54 pm 
the shimano tekota 700 is a great trolling reel with a very solid levelwind assembly. heavily used models are plagued by drag failures and internal corrosion. the handle grip is also very small. we are going to changed out the stock drag washers for greased carbontex, bolt on a 4/0 kolekar handle grip, service the bearings and brush a light coat of grease on all of the non-exposed metal and graphite surfaces. you're really going to like the results. here's a link to the schematic - http://fish.shimano.com/media/fishing/t ... 498849.pdf and here is our reel.

Image

Image

when a reel is shipped to me for service, i need line on the reel to test the drags. in the case of a levelwind, i like to return the reel with the line and the leveler in sync. what i will do in this case is pull the line all the way over the left side and cut the line. when i'm done, i can wind the leveler over to the far left, find the end of the line, poke it through the leveler and i'm back in sync. pretty smart, huh!

Image

back out the four left side plate screws (key #546).

Image

remove the two piece left side plate (key #592) and cover (key #593).

Image

here's the inside of the left side plate assembly.

Image

remove idler gear "B" (key # 586), idler gear "D" (key #587) and the left side plate bearing (key #584).

Image

Image

this bearing measures 5 x 11 x 4mm. lube the bearing and the idler gears with xtreme reel +.

Image

corrosion and salt build up are VERY SERIOUS problems with this series of reels. take the time now to brush in a light coat of grease onto all of the non-exposed metal AND graphite surfaces of this reel.

Image

lube the right spool bearing with xtreme reel +. this bearing measures 7 x 14 x 5mm. to service this bearing, carefully press out the crosspin.

Image

if you are going to cast with this reel, lube the levelwind assembly with xtreme reel +. if you are just trolling, you can use corrosion x or any oil that you wish.

Image

this reel has an excellent feature, a stabilizer bar "A" (key #579) that will prevent the loss of the pawl cap (key #522).

Image

remove the pawl cap (key #522).

Image

lube the line guide pawl (key #47).

Image

re-install the pawl (key #47), the cap (key #522) and stabilizer bar "A" (key #579).

Image

Image

install the left side plate (key #592) and cover (key #593). add a bead of grease to each screw hole.

Image

reinstall the four left side plate screws (key #546).

Image

give the spool a spin. nice, huh!

Image

now for the right side plate. remove the handle nut plate screw (key #128).

Image

remove the handle nut plate (key #557).

Image

remove the 13mm handle nut (key #425).

Image

remove the handle assembly (key #558).

Image

see the hole in the drive shaft (key #571)? there is a click pin (key #295) that will shoot out in that direction. let's try to not let it shoot out into never never land. back out the star drag (key #559) and look for the click pin to pop out.

Image

there it is.

Image

remove the star drag washer (key #429) and the four drag spring washers (key #'s 430 and 431).

Image

remove the bearing seal (key #433) and bearing thrust washers (key #481).

Image

remove the two right side plate screws "B" (key #506).

Image

remove the shorter right side plate screw "A"'s(key #560) and longer "B"'s (key #523).

Image

line everything up and keep things in order.

Image

carefully lift up the right side plate (key #561). some parts are going to stay with the side plate.

Image

Image

pull the roller clutch inner tube (key #564) out of the right side plate.

Image

remove the drive shaft bearing (key #486). it measures 10 x 15 x 4mm.

Image

remove the yoke springs (key #299).

Image

there are two small thrust washers (no key #) that sit on top of the support shafts for the yoke springs. set them aside.

Image

Image

take a second for a quick survey. double dogs! very nice.

Image

remove the drive gear (key #568) with drag washers.

Image

spread out all of the metal key and eared washers (key #'s 565 and 567) and dartanium drag washers "A" and "B" (key #'s 566 and 569).

Image

take a close look. this is what a very sticky dartanium drag looks like.

Image

we're going to toss the old washers and install a set of carbontex drag washers from http://smoothdrag.com/price.html.

Image

let's clean up the base plate first.

Image

pull the yoke plate (key #577), the yoke (key #300) and pinion gear (key #576).

Image

remove the four anti-reverse pawl screws (key #305) and anti-reverse pawl keepers (key #306).

Image

remove the anti-reverse pawls (key #303) and the anti-reverse ratchet (key #570).

Image

take a look at the pawls (key #303) and make sure they are not banged up.

Image

clean up the base plate and spread the grease around evenly with an old toothbrush.

Image

Image

these pins (no key #) require no servicing.

Image

add the anti-reverse pawls (key #303) to the anti-reverse ratchet (key #570).

Image

install the pawls and ratchet as a unit.

Image

install the anti-reverse pawl keepers (key #306) and screws (key #305).

Image

install the yoke plate (key #577).

Image

add some xtreme reel + to the spool shaft to clean the grease off the shaft and leave a coat of teflon.

Image

the yoke (key #300) has to be installed "bevelled side" down.

Image

install the yoke (key #300) and pinion gear (key #576) as a unit.

Image

install the thrust washers (no key #) on top of the yoke springs supports.

Image

install the yoke springs (key #299).

Image

let's rebuild the drag stack. slap a coat of drag grease on all of the carbontex drag washers.

Image

keep the fiber and metal washers in their original order. metal washers alternate "keyed, eared, keyed."

Image

install the roller clutch inner tube (key #564).

Image

take an old toothbrush and spread an even coat of grease on the inside of the right side plate (key #561).

Image

add a bead of grease to each screw hole in the base plate.

Image

install the right side plate. make sure that the yoke plate (key #577) is "up" and that the clutch lever (key #562) is in the forward or "in gear" position.

Image

Image

install the six right side plate screws "A" (key #560), "B" (key #506) and "C" (key # 523).

Image

Image

install the drive shaft bearing (key #486), pack it with grease first.

Image

Image

install the bearing seal (key #433) and bearing thrust washers (key #481).

Image

install the four drag spring washers (key #'s 430 and 431) and star drag washer (key #429).

Image

install the click pin (key #295). the click spring (key #296) should already be inside.

Image

push the click pin down and insert a toothpick into the drive shaft to hold the pin in a down position.

Image

install the star drag (key #559).

Image

turn the star drag (key #559) down until it clears the shoulders of the drive shaft (key #571).

Image

install the drive shaft shield (key #427). this was not shown during tear down.

Image

now we're going to drill out the old handle grip and bolt on a new kolekar grip. this dot on the rivet will help.

Image

use a 3/16ths inch drill bit to drill out the rivet.

Image

Image

Image

Image

compare the old grip to the new one.

Image

use a 1/8th inch hex drive for this 10-32 hex socket cap screw.

Image

changing out the handle grip is a very important part of this upgrade.

Image

install the new kolekar handle.

Image

install the 13mm handle nut (key #425) and handle nut plate (key #557).

Image

install the handle nut plate screw (key #128).

Image

and done!!!!!!!!! a quick check of the freespool shows that the line leveler will travel the width of the spool three times before stopping.

Image

oops, not quite done. crank the handle until the line guide (key #574) travels to the far left, find the tag end of the fishing line, poke it through the line guide and tie it off.

Image

ok, now we're done!
