I received my 4 sets today, they look great. Now all I need is time to install them

Thanks

Mike
I have not failed.  I just found 10,000 ways that won't work.

I put one of my three sets in a 501 today. I've got to say this is a great upgrade. The best part is its truly drop in. No alterations of the side plate or bridge. Just a parts swap. Well done Alan! I will mention the only two minor issues I found. I normally wouldn't comment on them but I thought someone might benefit. When I put the springs and dogs on the bridge one spring kept jumping out of the slot in the dog. It was due to a spring that had the end bent at less than a 90 degree angle. It was probably bent in shipping because the spring is delicate. I bent it to a 90 with a pair of needle nose and problem solved. The other thing was it wouldn't go all the way into free spool after I assembled it. There was a small burr on the jack that was catching on the yoke. I hit it lightly with some sand paper and now its smooth as butter. I think the burr was from when the tabs were punched. No big deal but I will look at the others when I install them.
   These were very minor problems and would not keep me from buying more. Over all this is a very nice upgrade. Thanks again Alan!  Bob

That's typical when you install a stainless yoke Bob. Of all the BP Gears I've put in 114H's and 9/0's. If you don't polish up the jack tabs with some emery cloth, they will hang up every time. ::)

Initially, I was going to use the soft springs for both dogs. However, I decided to use a little bit stiffer spring for both dogs. By doing so, that spring will lift up the dog slightly (it won't hurt, but I just want to play it safe). Therefore, I am going to go back to the original design for the softer springs. They will be available in 2 weeks (ETA). I will send them out to people upon request. By the way, the PENN OEM spring will also work if you have some on hand.

Alan, The one that was bent was one that was already on the bridge post. It wasn't a big deal. I like the stiffer springs. The burr on the jack was tiny too. I probably could have forced it but I prefer to play it safe.  ;)  I just wanted to mention it unless someone else had the same problem. I really like them like they are.  thanks, Bob

The stiffer spring will lift up the dog a little bit. If the softer spring is used, the dog will stay flat. The stiffer spring has little bit much power.
As I mentioned before, I want to play it safe and let everybody to know.

Bob,
Thanks for the "heads up" on the spring and little burr.  You are right, that could be very helpful and I will be watching for those issues before installing.

I put my set into a 500S. I also had a little issue with spring on the main dog, but a little bending got me in business. My original bridge has a dog with a C clip that either Penn did or after market modification, but the new bridge when in it's place a okay. My S also has the red spool which I think makes it the anniversary edition but maybe not and is also newer I think. I'm old so I did make a common mistake by putting a screw with threads in the spring hole, which I since corrected due to the free spool lever not wanting to work. DOH! I did not have to sand anything and it is now working smoothly. I did add just a touch of grease on the dog pin to help hold things while my fumble fingers put it back together.

I did notice a burr on the 2 yokes from when it was punch out. I installed it anyway, it didn't cause any problems that I saw, I'll go ahead & deburr them just to make sure. I also had the dog springs wanting to pop up so there's another fix.I installed the new parts in a Newell 300c set of sideplates along with a stainless sleeve & Newell 5-1 gear set, everything went together fine. Now I'got a nice strong jig reel for fishing the surface iron.
