Greg,

Nice pick! I've never broken down a 300 or 500 series reel, so let us know how close it comes to the info in this tutorial.



Tommy, Sorry I have been so long getting back to this.
It looks like the plastic clicker is also the only drag washer?  I have not been able to remove the spool shaft, which means I can't remove the main gear.
Any suggestions very welcome.
Greg

Hi Greg --

Not trying to butt in -- and Tom will know for sure...however, there is a little metal "horseshoe shaped" retainer that can be removed with a small screwdriver, needlenose, or tweezers.

It is shown in your photo tucked into the carriage slide.

The spool shaft should come right out when this is removed.

Best, Fred

Self-worth is how you value yourself. It’s not based on what others think of you or the things you have (or haven’t) accomplished—it comes from within. But it’s easy to forget that our worth isn’t determined by outside forces -- each of us sets our own price.

I will let the pictures describe the rest of the reels build. The rotor to body attachment is a surprise.

Well advised, Fred. I've never been inside a 500 or 300 series, or really any Cardinal post the 600 & 700 series'. I had heard, though, that the 500 series was cheapened quite a bit. Looks like AG just continued cutting corners.  Sad

Love those open face spinning reels! (Especially ABU & ABU/Zebco Cardinals)
