Hi Guys, my first attempt at this so here goes....
The salina saltwater in the 3000 size, it's now my go to kayak fishing spinning reel.
I haven't been able to find an online copy but i'll post if wanted.
We'll break the reel down to it's three main components and then go from there, focusing on the spool and body.
We'll start with the spool, it's a standard spinner three felt washer stack with a fourth underneath the spool. I won't bore you with the top as it's pretty standard. I have yet to order the carbontex upgrades from Dawn but they will come in time. To remove the the top and bottom washers you need only remove the spring clips shown. You'll notice the bottom metal drag washer holds the spool clicker mehanism, give a good clean and grease.
Like the more high end spinners, the salina II spools have two bearings, one top and one bottom with a brass spacer between (not shown), the bottom bearing is held in by a click plate and spring clip. The top bearing is held in by the drag stack.
Now for the body, once you've removed the rotor you can see the clutch housing cover, remove this,
now you can remove the pinion gear and bearing, you'll notice the clutch roller is beneath the bearing. The anti reverse clutch is a tricky little beggar on this reel. It was in good condition and got a blast with brake cleaner and an oil (not shown). I've set the pinion bearing aside for a good blast of brake cleaner, compressed air and some good quality speed oil.
Lets get that body apart and have a good look.
First thing is like most Okuma spinners it uses elliptical gearing, which makes putting it back together just that little bit more fiddly. Okay remove that left side plate, clean give it a coat of marine grease and set aside, remove the bearing, this gets the A.T. treatment (by hand) and is reassembled.
Okay, now we remove the remaining washers and the screw for the spool shaft and pull it out. Now we remove the drive gear and give the other bearing the same treatment, after all ocean kayaking is a pretty tough environment for reels.
now remove the other internals in order and lay them out and give them a good clean. Next is to give the reel body a good clean and coat of marine grease before we start the re-assembly.
In go the parts in the reverse order they were removed, cleaned and greased of course, the most important part of re-assembly is the elliptical gearing, the teeth are marked with red as well as the drive gear having a convenient hole in which to ensure the correct teeth are meshing, the opposite cog also has a red dot with which to assist the lining it all up correctly.
The rest should go back together nicely
. When i have more time i'll put some better photos and the key number s for all the parts in.
