Hi Justin, it was a lovely original boxed reel and will make a nice  addition to some ones collection. I just bought a brand new 501 (Junior/Narrow) for a friend from my  Penn spares guy. Only cost £40 ($63) lovely reel. Fairly unique as the left side plate has "Penn Jigmaster" embossed and the right side plate "Penn 500" no mention of USA, strange! Wink    Anyway the new owner is very happy as he now has a great little Penn jigging reel that should serve him well for many years. Grin

Alan directed me to this thread to replace the drags in my ProGear 255. Was real nervous because I'm not mechanically inclined. And .... success! New drags in, reel all clean ans lubed properly. What a great place this is. Went on to do the same for an old Calcutta. Great site!

It's okay to use the brass yoke with SS pinions.  It just doesn't last as long.

Some of the yokes have a slight angle where it engages with the eccentric jack.  If it is in upside down, sometimes the yoke will not engage easily.  Not sure about your SS one.

Ran into that problem while out fishing lucky i brought a back up reel. Went back home opened it up, flipped it around and no problems after that.

it's getting hung up somewhere.  compare the brass and stainless together, make sure they are the same size, make sure there are no burrs, and make sure that you are using bridge screws that are threaded only at the tip and not for the entire length of the screw.

X2  If the holes on your yoke are a bit tight this will cause you problems.

I just picked up a 501, while spooling it with 30lb mono I can feel a grinding noise when I crank the handle, there doesn't seem to be any teeth missing on the gears though. If the gear sleave is bad would this cause the grinding?

Sounds like gears. It's not easy to determine if the gears are ok with the naked eye, try taking a closer look with a magnifying glass. Also, the dog would usually give before the gear sleave, check it as well.
