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,

Nothing happened. The fish just moved away slowly and the old man could not raise him an inch. His line was strong and made for heavy fish and he held it against his back until it was so taut that beads of water were jumping from it. Then it began to make a slow hissing sound in the water and he still held it, bracing himself against the thwart and leaning back against the pull. The boat began to move slowly off toward the north-west.

Santiago knew what he was in for, his lifelong experience had prepared him...
