Any gotchas I should be aware of?  I've never serviced a Stella so I want to know what I'm up against.  With new reels, I usually take lots of pictures during the disassembly reassembly process and it makes things go much more smoothly.

They are extraordinarily complex little reels. Some of the sub-assemblies have more individual parts than entire overhead reels. Also take careful note of the position of any shim washers, especially on either side of the main gear and any bearings; they may not be on the schematic at all, or might be represented as a single washer when more are present. It is very easy to pull the shims out stuck to a bearing or gear and not notice it, then accidentally remove it while cleaning parts, and the reel will not have quite the same buttery smoothness when reassembled.
