Converting Daiwa Tournament 5000T spool to QD at home with photos.

First of all I should point out that Iím not an expert but having just finished my set of 3 I wish I had found what Iím about to show you.

Both the cap and spool spacers have to be changed/modified, the photos are not in any particular order.

The cap
On the inside of the cap there are 10 lugs, these have to be cut down below the surface to remove that part, a 2.5mm drill will get you through with a small amount to clear out with a small knife etc, when the plate is removed the rest of the lugs can be cleaned off, I scratched the back to give the glue a good key, take the spring and brass screw out and clean any oil from them and the inner of the cap, the spacer I made to replace the spring is 8mm long x 14mm dia with a 9.5mm hole.
Assembly
Put the brass screw in first then the new collar followed by the tin hat shape component, before gluing do a dry tun, maybe cloths pegs of similar can be used as cramps, a small amount of Araldte is all you need, leave over night, job done.

The spool
With a large clear freezer bag put inside and remove the circlip with a small pin, as you take out each spacer lay them down in order of removal.
Assembly
Place the 5 new washers next to the felt ones, clean the inside of the spool and add a small amount of grease, clean and re grease each washer as you re fit them putting in the new washers in place of the felt oneís, back to the freezer bag to fit the circlip make sure it tucks in under the lip all round, hopefully thatís it.

TIP
Take pics as you go, the freezer bag is to contain the clip if it fly's off.

It might be worth copying this link onto the end of your #1 post as quite a bit of the discussion and lead up to your diy job is mentioned in the ice washer qd thread.

Drilling the lugs is an awful and time consuming method to remove the cap! Just hold the heat from a small blow torch over the lugs whilst applying tension to the cap and theyíll slowly soften and itíll pull off, then when youíve done the mod put the cap back on apply heat and then wait for it to cool and harden again.

No one will even know theyíve been opened

Always good to have a go to guide

I have never had to drill any out before, i found the cap centre will detach from the lugs with a prise from a screwdriver in the recess each side as per pics.
Little bit of nail polish on afterwards when snapping back together

If you are not in the position to make a spacer to replace the spring, a 10mm copper olive (small oil pipe size) will do the trick
