Hi guys, need some advice on this reel since it's my first ever Newell. Bought it used and seemed to be in excellent shape.

Looking at the bridge assembly I noticed some corrosion on that circlip and jack post, and also the lever.

The circlip broke while I was removing it from the post. I didn't think the rust was that bad and as you can see only part of it is shown. I have no idea where the other piece went. Looked all over the floor where I was disassembling it and found nothing. Anyway, I believe the part number is 3-21. Anyone know where I can find a replacement?

I'm going to replace the drag stack with Bryan's kit and also the sleeve with the Cortez replacement.

Any recommendations for other parts of the bridge assembly that should be replaced?

I've already ordered the kit through Mystic Parts prior to seeing your post. But I'll be glad to take you up on that offer, incoming PM Cheesy

Got the circlip installed...thanks again Alan!

Everything all cleaned up and lubed. Installed Bryan's drag kit, Tiburon 808 frame and Cortez Conversions clicker kit and SS sleeve.

Question on the belleville washer/spring. Which is the correct assembly, the smaller or larger on top of the drag stack? The smaller one came assembled on the drag stack and the larger one on the drag star.

Edit: oops sorry what I meant to say is should I use the stock belelville(large) washer/spring or Bryan's(small) washer/spring?
