Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will.

Mo, my 248 had felt washers instead of leather.


   I notice it has the same metals though...and the same order too. I thought it was odd that the wave washer is sandwiched between two friction washers. I'm not sure how the felt washers perform, but the leather ones produce an excellent drag, especially for such a rudimentary setup.

Found this old 248 ad online.  Good bargain on a quality reel.
