Thank you so much for the reply it's interesting that you ask where it came from because it is almost as if it is a hybrid. I am in Australia but the reel came from Japan and is labelled as a Tanacom 1000 but it has the Set Plate (item 7 in schematic attached) that the Tanacom Bull has and the Tanacom 1000 doesn't have as far as I have been able to make out looking at the 1000 schematics. And the operating manual that came with it is for a Tanacom Bull. Even the handle knob is different from both the 1000 and the bull. The reel only has the 4 bearings not the 7 of the Bull.
That said I have 2 and they are both the same.
As I have said I am wondering if this washer was a later modification.
Either way I would be most appreciative if you could post your findings when you do strip the reel and I am more than happy to wait. Here's hoping that the one you do does have the mysterious washer!

The Yellow Eye in Washington is ALMOST as stupid as the Hood Canal.
Bottom fishing closed due to low dissolved Oxygen. Wait a minute, O2 and populations are fine. Well then, we'll keep the fishery closed to ensure a "reserve population," whatever that means. Oh, that's right, it means the millionaires that live on the Canal think fishing is wrong and don't want to see the low dollar fishing boats out their back window.

Too bad David.  They are lucking out on the sea conditions.  Check this report:  Dominick

"Fri..NE winds 5 to 10 kt in the morning, becoming variable 10 kt or less. Wind waves 2 ft or less. NW swell 3 to 4 ft at 10 seconds."

Your not helping me feel better Dominick!
Just kidding, the wife came down sick and my daughter is moving into her own place so taking off to go fishing isnít fitting in this weekend!  Have to look to next Tuesday maybe.

Got to handle one finally, brand new single speed model. Frame had rough unfinished casting edges but felt solid. The spool looked good. No infinite AR, so handle has a bit of back-play.

Unfortunately, the plastic lever and mechanism felt very cheap and clunky, rough to operate, and it all felt like it would go bad very easily. No way I'll be buying one of these. Still looking for a bargain Fathom!

 Those fish put up a heck of a fight for the first few minutes.

We have millions of yelloweye off Washington coast, but it's permanently closed for some unknown reason. Sad to hear of your closure. It seems to be the trend these days

Sometimes we can over-think things too much.

I know this to be true, since my wife reminds of it on a regular basis!  🤦‍♀️

Just use a little steel wool in ď0000Ē ó or a Dremel with a fine wire wheel. 

Most of it should come right off.

Rinse it in 💦 water ó then blow 💨 it completely dry.

If you are concerned about protecting the surface ó just brush it over with a little clear fingernail polish.

Just my opinion...

Thanks for the interest, these little reds are very tasty, for a month Iíve been getting a dozen a day.🌞
    For my climate the big slicers need more heat. Butt, these little ones fill the salad plate every day.
