do the bearings fit right in like the inside bearing on the crank on the 706z or does it have to be milled out ? I would leave this reel as is , it looks good and get another 1 off flea bay for about $50 and have at it for the slots VS look . By the way whats the size hole and space of the slots center to center ?

Well,after a month and two attempts i finally pick up the reels and they look great and the finish seems almost indestructable, got really excited and when i start to assemble i realize that the spools don't even fit inside the rotor, after a 20 minute discussion about the need for a thin, even coat, i went to pick them up on tuesday and they were only coated on one side(outside), now they put so much on that the spool won't even fit inside the rotor! My appologies for the people waiting for these but i need to bring them back(spool and rotor) and have them redone.

P.S. Jim if you read this i'm not getting any notification.

did you use powder coat ? cause if you did the best thing to do is to sand the spools first before hand and only spray a very light coat on the inside of the rotor cup like i did on this one http://cgi.ebay.com/Restored-Penn-70...item19c46f6ff7 it works out alot better

Yes they were powdercoated. I also add bearings so the job gets a little bit trickier, the instructions were accurate but nobody listened.....problem solved though...

Where did you get that Penn 704z power knob set up? I'm in the process of refurbishing an old black n' gold.

Thanks

Hey RJ, recognise the SWEEEEET Reel in HarrytheKid's mouth? He loves it! He shows it off to everyone who fishes with us. He refers to it as his "PennVanStaal". He certainly catches plenty of fish with it!
Guys, Cappy did this reel for The Kid last winter and it is as smooth as a gravy sandwich! Thanks again Cappy!

You can order them online here: http://store.scottsbt.com/PennParts/...FdZ25Qod0XHV7w

Or you can just go to your local tackle shop and see if they have any kits or accesories, or they can order them for you
