It worked!!  For the record, what I purposely bent the ears on was the "eccentric jack" (part 11-66).  Took 3 tries to get it.  1st time not enough.   2nd time too much / would not get into gear.  Posted a picture of the knob because it seems a little older and less common.  Well, we shall fish her this weekend.  Thanks gentlemen!

   This is one of those common problems that rears it's head quite often...glad it worked for you! I have a few reels myself that could benefit from this fix. Too bad you have to completely disassemble to perform it...oh well...the practice is good for us all! Cool

A first for me.  It made me realize that should store my reels in the "on" position so that clutch springs are uncompressed.  Also, I am wondering if instead of bending the jack, if putting some washers on top of the yolk would be effective.  Seems that bending the ears increases the range of movement in/out, wheras adding some washers would keep the range, but set the place where it moves a little "deeper".  Let's just say I didn't feel good about bending parts.

Want to have a laugh. I worked on a 155 today that had just about the same problem. It needed full service so I broke it down and cleaned it up. Then I proceeded to attack the free spool and clicking problem like it was the clutch situation. I found that the pinon was not clearing the bridge so I tried bending the ears on the Ecc. jack, after doing that it was no better.

Hmmm what the heck Huh? Then I happened to look at the eccentric lever and eccentric low and behold there was play in it back and forth. I took the old lever off and replaced it with a new one, it tightened it up and it worked perfect. So there is another solution to the same situation.

Nice!  Good to keep an open mind on these matters.
