Pretty sure the 'asbestos' drag washers are better dry - they lose friction with oil or grease. Carbon washers with grease is a better option but if you want to run with the originals, leave them dry.

The Hedgehog gizmo (in the link above) has a cupped end and a smaller straight end.  The cupped end pushes the pin until it is flush with the shaft.  Then the straight end is used to press the pin through the shaft until if falls out on the other side and is caught in the dish.  You do not have to grab it with pliers.

I call them cancer drags and chuck them.

Does anyone know if you grease the old style original drag washers in the 280 Albacore specials? Looks like asbestos.

You can get plastic foam-filled dock floats, but they'd cast you as much as that boat.

Bottom line -- here is what I decided to do:

After the PB CEO was fired for handling this so badly -- PB came out with some much smaller fees to reinstate our accounts.

I signed up for that -- and all of my photos were restored within a minute.

Then, I downloaded all of the photos to a physical device of my own -- and repopulated the old posts with my own original photos.

Did I want to do this -- NO!

But not doing it -- only kept me sour -- and PB was still in charge of my photos and posts.

So I did what I could do to regain personal control -- and just moved forward.

It is easy to say that other's actions are wrong and possibly bordering on illegal -- but the next steps we take are so crucial to our own well being -- realizing that we must have control -- and we cannot allow anyone else to determine that for us.

My grandmother used to tell me that the trouble in wrestling with Pigs, was -- you will both get muddy and S*** stained -- the difference is -- the Pig likes it!

Just what I did -- maybe mot for anyone else.

But the main thing is to get YOUR photos unlocked and accessible -- so you can then make some decisions that YOU have control over.

This is long passed. I am not sour, I have a personal satisfaction of not giving PB a penny and having negative comments to make about them whenever I get the chance. All the photos I had on PB were reduced sized for the purpose of posting in threads. I have all the originals in my own files. My old posts are altered here and an endless amount on the ORCA site. The job of getting the all the photos placed back into their old posts is too daunting for me to even consider. I learned to never trust business people at a much deeper level after they did that to me.
