Even though they look like that at times they will  work just fine, as long as you use the same two gears.

Nelz, here's a peroid correct LB60 gear set ( probably WW-2 era) from a reel with no part numbers. Pretty good shape. They're yours N/C if you want them. Got some other LB60 parts from this reel too. Lemme know.

Thanks for the gears Gfish, they're very smooth. Just need to file down the pinion a touch as it clicks a bit when in free-spool with the reel facing to the left.

You're very welcome.
Could be the eccentric jack's not pushing the yolk/pinion down far enough away from the male part a the spool in the freespool mode. Or mabey you just need to file it...
You'ed think if tilting it to the right you'ed get the kinda problem with the thing I mentioned above...? Not when you tilt it to the left. These type a problems witha Penn are fun to solve.

Well, thanks to some working gears from Gfish and a new dog from Fred, this 1938 Long Beach has now been brought back to life and is actually fully functional. Thanks guys!

It still looks pretty rough, but all external parts are original including the handle with unique resin knob.

Gfish, as for the pinion clicking, it turns out that the  Pinion Yoke is slightly indented on one side and I had installed it backwards, all fixed now.

Nelz, that "collar" was worn by the pinion. But there is a top side and a bottom side to these collars because of the way they are stamped in the manufacturing process. One edge is a little rounded, the other more flat and the edges are more sharp. In general, you want the rounded side to ride against the eccentric jack. Some of us even polish these two surfaces so they ride smoothly against one another. It does make a difference in the feel of the clutch....
