Hopefully! It has been fun and educational figuring this reel out. Makes me a lot more confident moving on with reel maintenance. Next up is seeing what I actually manage catch with it  Grin.

Just my opinion, but in the last few pics there is a lot of grease around the dog. That could slow the dog as it rebounds...

The bushing and spool spindle are what keep the main and pinion gear laterally engaged when you are reeling. Any chance of a loose, off-center, or deformed bushing, or a bent/broken spindle? If so, I would expect the spool to rub too.

Now that is an invitation!!

If I had that invite 20 years ago, Alan and Bryan would have probably charged me rent for the time spent in their garages.  I'd have gained a lot of correct and valuable info rather than through trials and tribulations.

Jim, we would have encouraged you to post your trials and tribulations as Iím sure we have all gone down those paths, and how you have came out the better. Itís all about you, not us.

I believe the spool is making a solid connection with both the left side and the pinion. I may have gotten a bit overzealous with the grease and can wipe some away but the dog hasn't shown any issues with staying with the gear. Bryan, I am going to see if this fix works when I receive the eccentric. If not I may have to take you up on your offer.

Received my package from Keith today, swapped the eccentric out, filed down the protruding part of the free spool spring and we are in business now! I wanted to make sure and thank everyone for your advice and help.
Time to go catch some fish.

What? Me worry?

Cool!
But I godda ask, was it the eccentric jack, or the spring end sticking up, that was causing the problem? If it was the e. Jack, then what specifically was off on it? Kinda sounds like the "sticking up spring end" was affecting proper e. Jack movement.
It's a learning thing...
