Posted in its entirety here for your convenience..Accurate 665H Service TutorialSingle Speed Twin Drag Reel
I learned about this from the Accurate website picture tutorials
Enjoy other models info on Accurate's suppport webpage
A Friend of mine, dropped off a couple of Accurate leverdrag reels,, and, I'd never worked on
anything like these before.. I had no idea how to even start..so, I looked up Accurate Reels website, and looked
around,, and they have a great tutorial with pics on how to do this.. their information was very informative and
gave me the confidence to attempt this..
So,,,, here we go..
The first thing is I removed the 4 little screws from the crank/right side with the appropriate
Torx driver a T7 seemed to work well..
Then you should be able to separate the spool and rightside as a unit, from the leftside/frame
Remove the dirt shield,, it's a little grey plastic piece,, it's just sitting there, if it didn't
fall out on its own..
To disassemble the frame components,, I removed the rod clamp studs,, You will need to remove
them to get the right side and spool out.. at least on this reel.
Also, the reelfoot, held in place by 4 screws was removed.
The cap on the leftside is held in place by a little plastic like keeper ring,, Carefully remove
it,, it has ears that fall into slots in the adjusting cap..
The endcap can just be pulled off at this point,, but, I used it to unscrew the little threaded
piece that applies pressure to the spoolshaft. Then separate them once it comes out!
Don't overlook the O-ring.. I removed it, and got everything cleaned up and re-lubed..
The clicker mechanism is fairly straight forward.. e-clip holding the click tongue, and the black
plastic "spring" held in place by two screws.. Remove,, clean and relube.. reassemble,,
Everything on this reel looked OK, and was working nicely before,, so just a clean and lube here..
The bearing is held in place by an easily removed keeper ring,, carefully lift it up and remove
it,, then the bearing can be gently nudged out of it's recess..
I then cleaned and regreased everything. And put a drop of Reel-X on the bearing.
Clean all the threaded components relating to the rod clamp and reelfoot, grease or re-grease
them and have them standing by for timely reassembly. I reassembled all the frame components at
this time. It's very simple and straightforward,, the rod clamp studs, will be installed later.
Turning to the "Other half"!! Following along with the Accurate pictorial... Hope you looked it
Turn the rightside handle "up" on your bench,, you can remove the plastic cover from the
leverdrag handle .
Set it aside,, and you can see the clip ring around the shaft,, it should be flush against the
With the spool axle resting on your bench,, push down on the right side frame,, and you'll see
the clip ring "lift"..
Remove it in this position,, while holding the components down,, you're overcoming spring
tension,, but, not too much..
Once the clip is off ,, you can remove the spool assembly from the rightside assembly.
Turning to the rightside,, you can see the inside of the sideplate showing the main gear ,,
I turned it over,, and removed the handle nut lock screw then remove the handle nut..
Lift the crank arm off the gearshaft, remove the O-ring
push the gearshaft out of the housing towards the inside.. You can then remove the main gear from
the shaft.. There are white spacers and brown "seals" on both sides,, carefully remove,
and I also lifted out the axle bearing behind the leverdrag
While on this side of the sideplate,, I removed the screws and keepers for the spring loaded
also I disassembled the handle,,
On to the lever drag ,,,,Remove these parts,, If they haven't fallen out,, you can pull on the
knurled ring and these will come out..
Then, you'll need to run down the street to ask to borrow your buddies snap ring pliers... Remove
the external snap ring that holds the lever arm onto it post.
You can remove the lever arm, and, don't lose the white spacer behind it..
There is a machined ring in the bottom of the lever arm "cup" that should just lift out..separate
the knurled ring from the cam
Your benchtop should be looking similar to this...
You can now turn your attention to the spool and drag components..
I followed Accurates suggestion,, and began with removing the 4 screws from the handleside of the
The black plate will lift off then the brake plate,, a small dog ring, and a small
do the same to the "clicker'' side,, and the spoolshaft will come out with those parts..
I didn't further disassemble as this reel was for service only,, and was actually working very
You should be somewhere like this....
You can see,, that the parts align themselves up into their respective groups!!!
I clean, inspect, and relube.. everything,, with appropriate care and material.
The frame consisting of the clicker mechanism, the axle tension mechanism(endcap w/ plunger)
bearing, and reelfoot,, have already been cleaned and greased..
Everything is ready for re-lubing and reassembly.. so, I reassemble the lever drag stops
grease and reinstall the brown seals and white spacers, and maingear and shaft.
don't forget the O-ring
and a drop of Reel-X in the Clutch bearings.
Reinstall the serviced handle!!
The Leverdrag is now able to be put back together...so, white spacer, greased, lever handle..
a little swipe of grease and install the snap ring,, I hope you didn't have to run back
down to your buddies house to borrow the snap ring pliers again...!!
Now,, the little cam ring needs to go in,, Look at it here,, there are 2 little areas cut out
that have to match up to the leverhandle.. these flat spots keep it from turning inside the lever,,
take care, get it indicated, and drop it in a well greased placement!!
Place the adjusting knob and upper cam into the assembly, install the bearing
Now, you can take the serviced spool assembly, and reinstall it into the rightside assembly,, the
same action, only in reverse,, is used to install the snap ring onto the spoolshaft..
You can install the dirt shield
Put the frame onto the spool and right side assembly, install the 4 screws, test all
functions,,and YOU"RE DONE!!
