really old, doubt that you could get much drag range out of it.  probably has a canvas drag.  doubtful that a carbon fiber upgrade would be readily available.  i'd pass.   Undecided

Replacement drag washer would probably have to be home made - cf not much of an issue.
Bearings will be standard metric - no issue.
Other parts - Huh?Huh?
Do you want to take a gamble??

It comes from the era when Okuma reels just weren't very good. in fact, they were bad. Very. Leave it alone unless its has sentimental value.
