Update:

While I haven't fished it yet, the matched set from Cone has made a big difference.  I had no idea that mixing used gears and pinions could could be a problem.  Always learning in this site.

Thanks Cone.  And to all who gave advice.

When I have assembled reels from old parts -- many times the gears just will not quiet, or mesh properly -- until I switch them out with others.  But visually, I can see no problems.

Just like wearing someone else's pair of old shoes -- never feels or fits right.  Your feet and style of walking are different from anyone else.

That is why you will observe in many of the older quality reels -- the engineers generally used a steel pinion, along with a brass main.  They were allowing the dissimilar metals to be quieter and smoother when meshing -- by knowing the main would wear out sooner and slightly under typical usage.  And of course, it would perform more smoothly and quietly.

And sometimes a yoke is either tweaked enough or rough around the edges -- that a switch-out there will help also -- then when you get it where you are satisfied -- don't over slop grease on the drive train -- but a little extra would not hurt anything -- particularly when using old used parts.

Under actual fishing pressure -- everything needs to be looked at in the drive train -- bearings, gears, yoke, jack, pinion bearing axle, spool ends -- and even potential frame/stand/post twist causing alignment issues when meshing together.

Sounds like you made good progress with everyone's input.

Best,

Fred

There are ten reasons to consider when choosing your next fishing reel.

The first is to pick a reel you like — The other nine reasons don’t matter.
