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?

You might take a look at Alan Tani's site.

Looking at post about Newell cups, the bearing might not come out.

Here's a pic of the reel seat. The reel is still apart, but has the solid bars, not the ones with holes.

yes what you got there is a Newell reel seat, as for the bearing... they are a pain to deal with, try hitting it with some heat that sometimes that helps.

I spent two hours trying to get the bearing out of the cup on the left side plate (non handle side), no luck. I'd just replace the cup and bearing:

You have to replace the bearing anyway, the cost for both cup and bearing is close enough to just the bearing to easily justify going that route. Shipping is what is painful for a small part like this. If you're close enough to Redondo Beach, Just Fishing by Pete will be happy to sell you the parts.

For pulling bearings,this is what I use, they will also work nicely on Newell, some of those are impossible to remove:
The tool isn't cheap, but if you service reels it will be money well spent.
This is one of the best tool I own.
