Mike, I've got the screws at the house. Wont be back home until Tues. or Wen. You can also call Okuma parts @ 909-923-2828. They are of course not that much. It's good to keep extras on hand.

What you describe regarding corrosion can happen. However what your describing with it was only being on the threads leads me to believe it could be this..... the loctite / threadlock Okuma uses does in fact ressemble corrosion or look like corrosion. When reassembling cover threads in grease & be sure to put a layer where the reel foot makes contact with the frame & you will be good to go.  

                You should get great service from this reel with very little worries... Jeff


                      Oh Thanks For That Alan... Jeff

actually, i was just thinking.  i have a bunch of metric screws from mcmaster for the andros 5.  are the screws for the reel seats of the andros 12 the same as the 5, or are they larger?

My Andros 5iia has part #'s 09301417 (short) and 09301218 (long) for the foot screws. My 12iia has part # 09301425 for all 4 screws. All have T10 heads.

Just ordered 4 reel foot screws from Okuma. Two for the Andros 12 and a long and a short for the 5. Very nice people, Kevin didn't even charge me for the screws. And free shipping from CA to GA.

Now THAT is customer service!

        Yup, this was what I was hoping for & why I encouraged you to call them... Jeff

Anybody got a spare ceramic ball (part #226) for the shift lever "clicker" they would be willing to send me? It's for my 5iia but is the same part # as on my 12iia.
My 5 started acting up at Cedros last week, couldn't fly line without my thumb on the spool because the initial drag tension was too high with lots of "slop" in the drag lever. Figured out last night that the ball was missing causing the sloppy drag lever.
I probably let this part "escape" when I was prepping the reel for Cedros. The compression spring is still present. I would have thought the ball would have some kind of retainer.
I almost hate to call Okuma. Several weeks ago they shipped me four foot screws for free. I don't mind paying for my own mistakes.

I'd be surprised if any body here had it. In fact I'd be impressed. I'd have to order it... Jeff

Okuma (and Kevin) did it again. They're mailing me a couple of the ceramic balls free of charge. Great customer service.
