I had some extra time today so I decided to play around with some reels. Is there anyone here that has ever installed a second dog on a Penn 114H? If it has been done already I won't even bother showing it. It seems that the dogs are engaging properly. Didn't put the reel back togheter to test it though, I need a couple of additional parts to complete it.  We'll see how that goes Undecided.

I just put the right side plate on one of my other reel to test it and it's working great. You do need patience to assemble the bridge plate with the two dogs, but, it can be done. I used one of those older plates with the easy access drag system, I don't think I would try it with the later models. I will show some shots when I get a chance.

That's classic - I've been thinking about this for a while, but hadn't had the time yet to test it out.
I assumed one would need to Dremel out a little more room around the bottom of the left bridge screw and use a silent dog (rather than a dog/spring set-up).
Looking forward to seeing how you got it all to work.
Cheers, Justin

Sal,

      You're unbelievable... I never asked if you still work or are retired cause if you still work... you're my hero!
I would love to see how ya did it, so I can do it to my 114hlw's for sharkin'.
Thanks

Hey guys. Here's a couple of shots of what I did...








I didn't have time to label each picture but, I did want to point out that taping the screws in place helps a lot here. The added dog has the spring from a larger Senator (I think a 10/0). You need to drop the gear in before you place the dogs. You will need to use a small screw driver to position the dog so that the bridge plate will slide in. I'm sure that this process can be refined...it was my first attempt! Overall, the reel is a bit nosier due to the additional dog (but that's a small price to pay, considering). Yes, Justin, you were right, I used a dremel. Dom, thanks for always having kind words, I wish I was retired but I think that won't happen until they are lowering me down...6 ft. down...and as for being a hero, I can't claim that title (well, except for when I sneak some T-Bone into my dog's dish!)

That's great Sal, almost exactly as I imagined - a cracker job as always.

Sal, buon amico -

Is there anything you don't do successfully the first time?  Like Wallace said, "Goodonya!"
