HEY BRYAN,

IN REVIEWING THIS TUTORIAL (GOOD JOB BTW), I NOTICED WHAT SEEMS TO BE STAINLESS STEEL DOGS.  WOULD YOU KNOW IF THEY ARE THE SAME SIZE AS THE PENN 4/O. IF SO, THEN I MAY BE ABLE TO PURCHASE SOME FROM PROGERAR @EBAY TO ADD DOUBLE DOGS FOR THE 4/0 TANK MOD.

Leo, they are not the same size as Penn's 4/0.  Contact Keta by Messaging him.  He just cut a bunch of SS dogs for Penn's 4/0 and 6/0 reels.

Hey Bryan, with all the recent talk about the PG282, it's got me thinking...
The last time I had mine apart it looked like it might be possible to add a second dog.
What do you reckon?
If so, do you happen to know where I might get the parts?
Cheers mate, Justin

Photos are back.  Maybe a problem with Photobucket.  Try again.

Hello Bryan,

I pulled down my Wahoo Special and found there were no spring washers under the drag star. I guess I'll have to find some to fit. I did however change the drag set. First I used a Penn 6-309 under the main gear. It was a perfect fit. I also used the same under the top domed metal washer. The first try was Penn's 116 HT-100 washers that were a hair too large. After a quick trim they fit perfect. That's probably whst you used.






I then cut a set out of Carbontex 1mm sheet and they too worked fine.
