SHIMANO tranx 400 handle bearing size

Post by tsang151 » Mon May 28, 2018 5:43 pm

I was hoping to replace the plastic “bearing” in the tranx power handle and wanted to confirm what the size was. Thanks!

If you are using the reel in saltwater I would leave the bushing in place. I will have to measure the bushing to determine the size and if we have a bearing available. I do not have the specs on hand.

Hi bantam,

Thank you for looking into this for me. I will wait to see what size specs you can find.

I had to order a handle to disassemble. I will have an answer for you tomorrow or Friday.

Here you go:

Inner bushing in OD x ID x W

9 x 5 x 3 mm

Outer bushing in OD x ID x W

9 x 4 x 4 mm (actual width measured 3.78mm so it might be hard to use a bearing in this location due to the width)

Is it ok to put a 400a handle on a 400hg?
