Imo, there's no need to excessively pack each tooth with grease to the point you can't visually make out the tooth depth. It only migrates away when forced to mate with the pinion gear. I often see bands of excessive grease thrown within the drives side plate masking drainage holes so if water ever intruded inside, it cannot seep out, e.g...



I personally like to brush a thin film of m/grease in between all gear teeth with a designated brush to both main and pinion gear. I do like to keep the inner bore of the p/gear grease free and lightly oiled to help retain good free spool qualities to fixed axle spools...






HTH, Steve

I know I have posted about this in the past,but it still irks me. The latest reels I have serviced,were ones with brass gears,conventionals. For whatever reason,they seem to push the grease out to the edge of the gear when I put new grease,,Yamalube cut with Corrosion X. The gear appears to hold such a fine coat of grease itís almost not visible. The first few reels I tried to service had cast zinc type gears,well the main was anyway. Point is,the cast gear seemed to hold on to the grease much better. I thought that maybe it was the mineral spirits I was using to degrease was causing it not to stick as well,so I tried GUNK brake cleaner this time,,and a follow up with hot soapy water and dawn. The results seem to be the same,looks like it just pushes the grease out to the edge,leaving what appears to be nothing in the mid section of the gear. Any thoughts on this?

a 114h.  this one was likely submerged.  somehow the click tongue broke.  water got into the drag stack and caused the gear sleeve to seize up.  i got apart, but only after torching it for a very long two minutes.  i find myself torching stuff alot more these days!  total time spend on this one was two hours!
