I'm sure many guys have atemtted this conversion, and the bush came out quite easily but more often then not it is quite a mission, there are even some reel repair guru's that claim it has to be mashined out.

You need a tap set and a 6mm tap and a hammer...



Next, screw the tap into the bush about 4 turns until it grips the bush firmly,



Remove the tap set from the tap but dont unscrew the tap from the bush



Lock the square end of the tap into a vise or use a vise grip and tap the area around the casing with your hammer



Lastly take the new Bearing, part number is MR 95 and push in with your hand, no mashining nothing!

Let me know what reels you are working on...no point in double work going on.

I plan to tackle the TOR 30 within the next few days. I also have a Saltist 50 comming in for washers and service.

Just a question about the circlip, do you just wedge a small screw driver in there and push it out or is there something else you need to do. Normally my DIY consists of a hammer and some brute strength so dont really want to bring this approach and mess up my reel

Thank you Whaler. Great post. The bearing that you used. Where does one buy that bearing? Is it the standard part number for the reel or the bearing? I want to upgrade my t30 with the bush to bearing conversion. Got the carbontex washers. I'm sure you know where i bought those washers :-). now the bush to bearing.

so reviving a very old tread.

it is time to do the conversion on my 2x torium 30's.
they have served me well thus far and good fish have been landed with them.

it seems like shimano discovered that the plastic housing etc will not last.

my reels have a aluminum insert in the casing.
inner diameter seems to be 9mm

the bearing sizes is 5x 9x 3.

so I will be getting ceramic bearings.
seems like I just need to press the new bearing into the aluminum casing.

will only be able to see when I get the bearings.

so watch this space.

looking at previous fitting of bearings, it is clear that we need to stay away from the normal mild steel bearing types.

so bearing man etc is a no go for me.
you need a bearing that will not rust!!!!

salt water will even get your wife to start rusting.

so a ARRB anti rust roller bearing is what you need.
abec bearings/ ceramic bearings will also do the job.
getting a supplier close to me is where the fun starts.

I will keep you guys updated on the progress

dankieā€¦.ou grootte!!!

ok the torium frame is all solid.
looks like aluminum but they will obviously call it something else....

bad thing was...reel was just serviced by myself 2x days ago and then.....I stripped it down again as my arse was itching in getting the conversion done!!!
