SERVICING — Shimano Antares DC7

Post by LLCC »

Image

This reel has many parts that only fit one way. Screws have different sizes and lengths, Gears and flywheels have different faces and springs have different sides. So make careful notes of the orientation when you strip the reel and mark which side is up/down. Also, have the schematic ready for reference. I've attached a scan of the DC7 schematic for you to print out enlarged. I found the original schematic that came with the reel too small to discern the tiny details with my old eyes. I think the Calais DC sold in the US have similar parts except for an additional part - BNT2404 which is an anti reverse pawl. Come to think of it, the additional part may be a useful add on mod for Antares owners who upgrade their drag ratings.

Amazing. I pulled a reel apart the other day, they're so complicated!

Yes they are, compared to the much bigger Penn Internationals!

But I recently had the opportunity to take apart a Shimano Stella C3000 eggbeater.

Now, I take back what I said about the Antares DC7 being complicated.

Hahahaha!
