I'll have to look but I think there are three total bearings on the spool shaft. Each is a different size. I've got one here in the office and I'll measure them....

If I don't post back soon, shoot me a measage

What is it that you are trying to accomplish with replacing them? A good flush and lube can do wonders. 3x8x4 and a 5x11x4 are the spool bearing sizes for it.

Yes it does have a bearing at the spool -

Just took it a part for fun. It became a struggle for me to put it back together :)

Is the lesson not to take it off the spool?

Yes. The 3x8 is on the sideplate, the 5x11 is on the spool. There is one under the spool tension cap, but that has nothing to do with the casting of the spool in a sense, it's more of a "load" bearing.

They make a nifty tool to remove that bearing, it's easy to do. Matt can tell you where to get one, being old I forgot where I got mine. As Matt said, cleaning and relubing with a good lube makes a big difference in the performance of the reel.

Every PQ I have done has had a 3x10x4 in side plate and under tension cap. As stated the tension cap bearing is only for spool shaft stability and doesn't turn during the cast. The other spool bearing is on the shaft behind a pin and it's a 5x11x4.

Palm side plate is the 3x10x4 Spool shaft 3x10x4 and the handle side or under the tension cap 3x10x4.

You can order new ones from BPS or look them up on BOCA I'm not sure what kind of up grade you're looking for.

As far as the bearing under the caps worthiness, well I've got reels in the shop that this bearing was completely seized from rust and casting was only mildly hampered if at all.
