Hi everyone, first post.
Does anyone  have a pinion gear or 5 to 1 set they would sell? I tried the 505/506 pinion and wonít work on this reel. My spool is skipping with a quick turn on the handle. Iíve had it apart several times and the only thing i can see is the pinion on the spool end is missing some material inside. I tried a S332 side plate assembly and everything was good. Iím pretty sure the pinion is just wore out over time. Thanks

You should replace both, the gears "mate" over time so a new pinion with the old main gear will be rough. Try the 505 gear and pinion together and see how that works if you haven't already.
Gear sets come up on ebay from time to time, might be your best bet. But them together though.
Oh ,welcome!

Thanks Swami,
I tried the 505/506 but it doesnít fit the lug on the spool. Also been checking eBay waiting for one to come up. Do all the different letter series take the same gear sets weather 5/1 or 3.6 /1 ?

Pretty much, I think your ok with the 200,300,400 series. Sometimes you can get a blackie reel pretty cheap on ebay and sell the parts on there to recoup some $.
 Right now Newell ebay prices have really gone up, some are crazy espescally the wide ones. 344's,454's,550's are getting crazy money compared to a few months ago.
Be patient, a set will pop up. Check tonight,there's a guy who puts his stuff on Sunday nights

Pull the ring off your old pinion gear and the PENN 505/506 pinion gear and swap the rings. You would need to braze the ring on the PENN pinion gear and it will work. Iíve done this to dozens of Newellís.
