｜How to replace genuine centrifugal brake
Take Ambassadeur 5501C as an example
Take the reel apart.
The spool should be out from the shaft.
(If shaft is not detachable, that type of reel is not compatible.)
Take out Cogwheel (white plastic gear) from spool by pulling it.
Then remove a bearing (10mm×4mm×4mm) after the Cogwheel.
The bearing should come off as you tip the spool.
To remove centrifugal brake
This kind of model has 6-point plastic brake which is press-fitted to spool.
Take the brake out by using a tool like a flat-blade screwdriver.
Please be careful not to damage the brake unit and not to scratch genuine spool.
Some earlier model have 2-point metallic brake.
In that case there is a C-shaped ring fixing the brake.
Take the ring out and remove the brake.
Those parts beside the spool are lined up in order of attachment.
Attach brake parts on the spool in the following order.
(copper plate washer, bearing, brake unit)
Press the brake unit to snap on by fingers.
There is a structured mounting surface of the brake.
The left side of the brake in the photo above is the contact face with spool.
Attach the bearing and the Cogwheel in this order.
The attaching portion is shaped for gear of Cogwheel.
Fit the Cogwheel into the shape as turning it, and press it tight.
At the above picture, the Cogwheel fits neatly into spool.
At the below picture, the Cogwheel doesn't fit well.
Please take care of brake blocks not to fall off when attaching the spool on.
Since the total weight of spool gets lighter, you will use less number of brake block.
