I open my 704z for cleaning. I had trouble removing the ball bearing. I applied WD40 to the ball bearing, but still I couldn't pulling out the ball bearing. How do you clean and remove the ball bearing in your 704z?

By the way, I am impressed with the simplicity of the reel design.

The penn website had an exploded diagram of its reels maybe that will help.

When I had that problem, I placed a large bladed screwdriver against the back end of the pinion gear and gently tapped it to loosen the bearing.

If wd40 gets inside a sealed bearing it will deplete the grease and distroy the bearing. I don't own a this reel so I'm guessing its an r4 or r6 bearing you might just want to replace it.

Bad guess. Whatever kind they are, they can last up to 30 years.

The ball bearing in my 704z is rusted and not moving at all. However the reel is smooth. I think the ball bearing in the 704z is not necesssary.

Deejay's advice based on his experience is sound as usual.

I for one do not go anywhere near my reels with WD-40. I only use the same kind of lubricant that comes with the reel or is recommended by the manufacturer.
