OCD Reel Service and Repair

One shim on the outer drag plate did the trick. Easy and and done. When drag was applied the outer drag plate was rubbing on the nuts that secure the gear adjustment screws. Shimmed on top of the left side plate bearing.

Thank you all,

Keith

+1 on the locating pins.  I seen them mashed into various stages of disulility.  Sometimes a visual check will tell you the pins are good, but then replacing them makes all the difference.

here's that shim washer that i was talking about earlier.  just finished two of these and they did not have or need the washer.  now this third one has a washer,  it provides a little space between the drag pressure plate and the left side plate bearing.  maybe there were differences between some of the different runs of side plates......   Undecided

Shimming in this location is also used to push the outter drag disc away from the cooling shield when the reel is in freespool and the belleville stack height is too small.  A mark from the spoolshaft contacting the tailplate when in full, or rub marks on the outter drag disc (from cooling shield, dog posts, or screws) is a telltale sign it is needed.

That’s all it took. I have seen that shim many times on the larger reels. I guess my memory is not working right.

Or the fact that i just quit smoking and my mind ain’t right.

This was great information plus a solid example of “Alan Tani worldwide Ohana teamwork” in action!

Impressive job, everyone!

Best,

“Of course, now I am too old to be much of a fisherman, and now of course I usually fish the big waters alone, although some friends think I shouldn’t. Like many fly fishermen in western Montana where the summer days are almost Arctic in length, I often do not start fishing until the cool of the evening.

Then in the Arctic half-light of the canyon, all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River and a four-count rhythm and the hope that a fish will rise.

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.

I am haunted by waters.”

― Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It
