OCD Reel Service and Repair


« on: June 10, 2019, 09:09:43 AM »

Hey guyís,

Doesnít all the VSW reels have a spool sleeve?

Iím working on a bunch of them and one doesnít have the sleeve. It does have a split ring clip on the pinion gearís shaft like the TLD reels. Iím have trouble with this one.

When I spin the spool it noisy as heck. As I increase the preset it goes away but the drag setting is way to high for trolling.

Any help is appreciated.

All the best,

Keith

All other functions of the reel work as they should. When in freespool I canít move the handle in or out. When in gear I can move the in and out 1/8 or more??

Keith,

What's the date code?  If the reel is a 2000-2003 (approx.) they used a different spool setup and no spool sleeve.

Thank you Tony.

Keith

After doing so many VSW reels from 12 to 80W all of them had a spool sleeve. The problem I'm having is freespool. Its a spacing issue. The spool makes a terrible racket in freespool. I have to turn the preset to a non usable drag (too high) to get the spool to stop making any noise.

Its a push drag system.

Any help is appreciated,

Keith
