Grease the handle nut and install, then brush grease on handle nut and handle nut retainer screw holeTighten handle nut and reinstall handle nut retainer and you are done and test the reel to make sure it works okay, then you are done.Oh, about the reel, the reel is a easy to service, and filled with stainless steel and brass alloys along with graphite frame and side plates, and brass allow bushing instead of bearings. This translates to a dependable reel in nasty conditions for line probably up to 30# or so. Use, wash, and reuse without frequent re-greasing. You may probably get away with blasting the inside of of both side plates with Corrosion X after ever trip and you should be good to go for another trip, and serviced yearly as most reels.I hope this helps you as it help me discover that posters of tutorials are awesome. It's hard to get all of the details, especially taking pics with greasy hands, then trying to communicate what you are looking at. All of you do excellent jobs and I need to practice. Thanks for allowing me to share.

I just looked up the cost of a new one and the new carbon fiber drag washers cost $10 plus almost that for shipping so I'm halfway into a new reel. lol Wanted to pull off a neat surprise for my fishing pal bro-in-law but it seems it may have backfired. I hope someone out there can fix it for me, he'll have a new reel again with carbon fiber drag. Bring on those Sharks !
