Anybody know which direction the spool shaft pin is supposed to move?  I suspect the spool bearing is toast as I hear a little squeal. 

I tried pushing both ways and.....no movement.  If I bugger that pin, are there replacements available?

It doesn’t matter which way the pin goes. It flanges in the middle a little.

If you bugger one up, like I have in the past due to corrosion, I had to make one from a ss welding rod by cutting a portion, putting it in a drill press and filing down the diameter until it’s just right.

Cheesy I talk with every part I send out and each reel I repair so that they perform at the top of their game. Cheesy
