I have succeeded in restoring the 12T previously mentioned.

My initial look was that the 1.2mm Carbontex should be running alright, but the drag was around 2LB and even less. Blueprinted the reel against the diagram and found everything is in order.

Belleville arrangement was found as (()) and I believe it's the same in the diagram.

As a last effort after not having success with 1.2mm Carbontex, I opened it up one last time and installed a 1.5mm Carbontex. Voila, all fixed and I'm surprised just how smooth and effortless it is to turn the drag lever. At max free spool the reel generated 6.5LB at Full so I'm well happy with the results.

Sure the reel is made like a tank and I'm sure many would have taken advantage to increase the drag. But as per Alan's comment I would think 15LB is a good stretch with the reel. What I could think off and I've done it before is to stiffen up the spring washers with flat ones. Just hope the drag lever and hub will last and could take the beating.
