The bail on my Boca 40 BSP40PTS(from about 10 years ago) was starting to not completely flip over when cranked. The bail is held in by two "C" clips, I removed it and found that the side with the roller has a magnetic insert that matches up with one on the rotor assembly. The magnet on the rotor has started to corrode, I cleaned it up and lubed it. There was also a "C" shaped washer, or what's left of it in there that isn't on the schematic. Looks like it was some sort of plastic with fiber backing. The fiber is gone so I out the plastic back and coated everything with Reel-X. Seems to work ok now.

Anyone familiar with this system and what that washer is?



My problem lies in reconciling my gross habits with my net income.

That's not a washer. It's a protective cover for the magnet. I guess they were glued on originally but they come off after a few years. As soon as the magnet is exposed, it starts to corrode. I cleaned one up well and coated it with clear nail polish, then a coat of grease. So far so good.
