I have a Okuma STV 56 can anyone tell me how to change the from a left hand side to right a right hand side for retrieving. The reel does not have the classic hexagon clip as seen on more traditional reels. Cheers for help.

Try this Andy. Do you mean SLV?

1. Remove spool.

2. Roller bearing is located in the centre of the spool, under the release cap. To remove the bearing, unscrew the two screws on the spool release cover.

3. Turn the spool over and take the bearing out of the spool. You can push the bearing out of the spool seat by inserting the main shaft of this reel or a small screw driver or flat tool under the metal bearing cover. Take care not to damage the bearing or pull the plastic sleeve out of the metal bearing retainer.

4. Flip the direction of the bearing and reinsert it into the spool. Replace the spool release cap and secure with the two screws.

Cheers.
