I just replaced the right side plate on my Penn 140 Squidder. It's an older one with the maroon side plates. The new part 2-200 ring would let me turn the side plate so as the take apart screw would enter its assigned hole.
Penn claims the Bakelight side plate has warped or expanded due to age and that they have not changed the specifications on this ring.  I fall to see if this is possible as the side plate is bound with a metal ring.
I had to sand the inside of the ring to get the plate (part 1-140) to fit.
Has anybody else had fitment problems with replacement Penn rings? Should I try to find a slightly larger inside
diamater ring ?

I have run into that same issue in the past George, but not often. Mine were the Surfmasters.
If I remember correctly, I think I drilled a small shallow hole at the very end of the slots where the pins slide. This allowed the plate ro rotate just a hair more, so the thumb screw would line up.

   I know it sounds silly to think the side plate would swell with age...but they sure do. I've seen scores of split rings, mostly on the larger side plates.

It happens a lot.  I use a flat mill file to shave down the bakelite so the ring will fit.

   I think removing material from the plate is a better option than removing it from the rings, As Steve said, a file...or an old screwdriver reshaped as a "scraper" will take it away, fairly quickly, just take care not to "slip" and mark the face area of the plate.

The Squidder Bakelite side plate has no contact with part 2-200 ring as it has a metal ring already mounted on the side plate. Two other 2-200 rings fit fine however they are retired due to cosmetic issues. This is leading me to believe the newer ring is smaller in diameter that the ones it replaced. For now the modified 2-200 ring will suffice however I will be trying other rings as it may be a part tolerance issue.
Thanks for the ideas Sqidders are still a useful reel.

   Sheesh...now I see what you mean George. The Squidder plate is bound in metal. If the two old rings fit then that spills the beans. The new one has to be a bit smaller. I suppose over all the years there has to be some fitment issues. I've had new Penn parts that had to be "tweaked" just a little to fit, it has to be expected I guess. It's a shame though, to have to sand the chrome off a brand new ring. Undecided

Ring problem solved. Procured another ring (Penn part 2-200) from a different supplier and it fit perfectly. Thanks to Sal for itís handle and the 146ís crossbars.

Nice selection, George.  Now that's a sweet handle shape and coloring.  Man, Sal, is making these reels complete with all these awesome knobs.
I'm a fan, keep it up Sal,

Good job making that reel work!


Thanks Dom!
