Update:

While I haven't fished it yet, the matched set from Cone has made a big difference.  I had no idea that mixing used gears and pinions could could be a problem.  Always learning in this site.

Thanks Cone.  And to all who gave advice.

When I have assembled reels from old parts -- many times the gears just will not quiet, or mesh properly -- until I switch them out with others.  But visually, I can see no problems.

Just like wearing someone else's pair of old shoes -- never feels or fits right.  Your feet and style of walking are different from anyone else.

That is why you will observe in many of the older quality reels -- the engineers generally used a steel pinion, along with a brass main.  They were allowing the dissimilar metals to be quieter and smoother when meshing -- by knowing the main would wear out sooner and slightly under typical usage.  And of course, it would perform more smoothly and quietly.

And sometimes a yoke is either tweaked enough or rough around the edges -- that a switch-out there will help also -- then when you get it where you are satisfied -- don't over slop grease on the drive train -- but a little extra would not hurt anything -- particularly when using old used parts.

Under actual fishing pressure -- everything needs to be looked at in the drive train -- bearings, gears, yoke, jack, pinion bearing axle, spool ends -- and even potential frame/stand/post twist causing alignment issues when meshing together.

Sounds like you made good progress with everyone's input.

Best,

Fred

“Of course, now I am too old to be much of a fisherman, and now of course I usually fish the big waters alone, although some friends think I shouldn’t. Like many fly fishermen in western Montana where the summer days are almost Arctic in length, I often do not start fishing until the cool of the evening.

Then in the Arctic half-light of the canyon, all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River and a four-count rhythm and the hope that a fish will rise.

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.

I am haunted by waters.”

― Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It
