Searched around and could not find an answer. My neighbor gave me a few Cal Stars yesterday, and on two of them were a Penn 100 and 505hs. I decided to tear down the 505 today to see its condition and maybe turn it into a back up or loaner reel, and was curious to know if its possible to remove the bearings from the two cups, and how to go about doing this. I tried a few picks and could not get them to budge. Also, i noticed that the reel seat is aluminum and stamped with Newell mfg, Glendale etc etc... Looks like this might be an aftermarket part, correct?
