I plan on attaching the leash to the reel clamp. I like the looks without a brace but when it comes down to it I don't want to gamble with a reel so special. Even tho I agree with you Bryanc, im thinking il be going the "better safe than sorry" route. Il be getting a brace. Wow it shined up beautifully!! Sorry about the issue. I know you'll come through on that and for that i am grateful.

Here is the bridge in question. I remember Tom having the same issue,

Two .010 shims for the sleeve.

Stack ready and greased. Delrin on top.

Prepping the Tom frame.


Here you Go Ryan. I'll get that brace and ship it back to you in the next day or so.

Nicely done, Daron. I understand the problem with the post/gear sleeve, but I don't understand your solution....

I would say he just got a later bridge that was the correct size.

Only from what I have learned here Ryan. Wait until you feel how comfortable that handle setup is. Wink

Doh! Does that still leave you with a mismatched set?

If it were any other Senator that gets the Hot Rod treatment, I would have had a spare.
My Man Fred already hooked me up.
One thing I need to add about this build. There is a hole on either side of these bushing reels that doesn't quite line up with Tom's frame.
It takes all of five seconds to remedy. The correct drill bit through the rings and plate.

I'm looking forward to the day I see Darren's picture on here wrestling a really big shark from the surf with one of his hot rodded winches.  Grin Grin Wink Roll Eyes
