Take the bearings out, soak them in kerosene for a day or so, then dry them off then re-install..

All I ever give them is ten minutes and a couple spins...dry em out then a drop of sewing machine oil and youre good as new

Do the Vectra SST bearing just drop out?

 

What do you do with a reel that has pressed in bearings (ie: my Stanton)? I have heard that most times you damage the bearings trying to get them out, and need to install new ones...

 

I use Militec-1 as a lube, works great.....
