Title: 265 Microlite - Bail Adjustment
Post by: Balvar24 on November 28, 2019, 07:14:20 AM
I'm trying to bring one back that's had an obvious hard life.

The bail trip lever was bent.  How do you do that?  I straightened it.

It also has a broken oscillator slide that I will need to source.

Also, the bail is tweaked good, but I can't tell where for sure, as I don't have another 265 to reference.

Could someone post some pictures of how their line roller aligns with the spool/rotor?  I think that's where my problem is at.

That helps.  Have you got a picture "looking down the barrel" so to speak.  Basically looking head on at the drag button?

When you figure out the parts you need for your 265 Microlite -- i have them available.

Lots of other knowledgeable folks on here when it comes to DAM Quicks --

And I also know them fairly well --

But parts availability is key -- and for Alan Tani members -- my DQ shop bins have that covered.

Best, Fred
