Quote from: SoCalAngler on November 23, 2014, 05:36:35 AMAlan stated one of the biggest issues with greasing the drags but with Avet's open drag system water can get into much of the spool/shaft, sleeve, and migrate over to the bellevillle washers which IMO all should also be oiled or better yet coated with a thin layer of grease. Further more the right side of the reel also needs to be addressed especially the pinion bearing, Avets biggest issue. Make sure that bearing is packed well any time you open a Avet reel.All parts should be removed and greased not oiled IMO (excluding the spool bearings) including the left side clicker parts, whole right side assembly including the shifting mech, dog plate, dog plate screws, control arm, gears, gear shaft and the bearing in the handle. The handle spinning freely is fine but if you really want to protect that bearing pack it with grease. Also protecting much of a reel a thin layer of grease is much better than oil IMO. Yeah I know pretty anal here, well at least for me but if someone is going to dive that deep into a reel they should go the whole 10 yards.

I like to put a this film of greese on the plates, screws, and a little cals on the drag. I put it all together, but I am having 2 problems:1. The spool seems to be offset a bit to the left (clicker side). I don't recal if it was like this origionally2. The spool does not freespool but for a few seconds. Perhaps because I used a thin film of grease on the shaft instead of oil.Additionally, when I took it apart, the spool came loose and all the belleview wahsers came off, so I am not sure how they are oriented. I started wtih ()()() and it would not freespool at all. Then I went to ((())) and it was better. Now I am at ((((((.Anyway, if there is any insight, it would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
