I won this in a give-away aboard an 8 day long range trip two years ago. I used it a few times without washing it down and found the jack lever stuck when I next went to use it. I can't seem to fix anything unless I strip it down to it's barest components. I guess I just like to spend all day piecing it back together.
Everything works fine now except for when I put the short screw in the end of the crank spindle. When turning the handle I noticed how much effort I needed to put into it in order to turn the spool. It feels as though something is sticky on the inside Even when the reel is in free spool and the drag is backed off, its still difficult to turn the handle. Since I can't figure out the function for that screw and the reel appears to works fine without it, does anyone see a potential problem by leaving it out.
