before you go spending a ton of money, just add a light coat of cal's grease to the carbon fiber drag washers, slap it back together and see how it fishes.  i think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Good afternoon all, got my drag washers and cleaning all my parts up and kind of embarressed to ask this question , ive looked everywhere on the board for answers but I cant seem to figure it out so Im asking again, lol. Is there a special gear puller to pull the main gear or should it come off easily? It has a little "wobble" to itand freely spins on the main shaft. The main gear going by the main gear thread is the one that appears to have the bushing in it. I have another small gear pulling tool around here somewhere but I am yet to find it and before I go into total search mode I figured I ask. TIA!

It should come off freely.  Sometimes a little corrosion, gunk, or marring on the main shaft may require that you use a little persuasion though.  I like to polish the bottom of the gear, inside of the gear bushing, and the gear shaft with some steel wool or a brass wheel on my benchtop grinder prior to reassembly to aid in felt smoothness.

Try to get the drag washers out first.  It may help to remove the gear sleeve from the bridge?

The washers are all out, i think i can see a small piece of raised metal (brass) at the base of the bushing that is the issue but Im not positive. Going to soak it with sea foam cleaner overnight until i can find a small gear puller or something else tomorrow to get it off. Thank you for the help!

It sound like you might need a new Gear sleeve.
Punch the pin out and take the main gear and sleeve off together.
Then you can see what you have.
Don't use a gear puller.
I can send you a new sleeve.
If you try to pull it off in that condition, you might damage the bridge and main gear.
Then you will need all three.
If the ridge on the sleeve is that pronounced, I would grind it down with a Dremel to get the main gear off without damaging it.

Thanks Sh! I got it off, just a bunch of dried gunk and a couple of small places that need some attention. Into the soak they go!

Well , thanks to everyones help i put the reel all back together yesterday, new drag washers and reel cleaned lubed and boy what a difference I can tell already. Havnt put the scale on it yet but it really feels great, even if it doesnt look that great, lol. The old carbon fiber washers upon inspection definitely were bad. Thanks again everyone so Im not sure whats next, probably a 20 or 50 international.

Nice work! If you didn't already, a light coat of Penn blue is in order on  the click spring, jack and bridge. You have a corrosion spot starting on the bridge plate it looks like.

Now let's see some fish pics!

Congratulations Mile nice work, now that you have mastered one Penn senator, they are all the same, the gearing looked pretty good, forget about the Internationals, this reel will last you for years, you should get about 600M of 100 lbs braid on it, and still have room for momo top shot, I would also grease the spool then rap, some tape over it before winding the braid on to it. cheers Don.
