"This ship is filthy Mr. Christian!"

   This is another one of those reels that has been avoiding me, and the last model I needed from the 8000 series. Like most of the other 8000s I've found, it was good 'n' rough. I used the coin routine again for the missing badge...this time a penny was the best fit. She had a toasted bearing, and cleaning offered no help. Saved by Fred yet again, as one of the South Bend bearings he sent me slipped right in. I had most of the reel back together before I realized I had no pics, so I snapped a few for posterity. Also, if you need more teardown details, just check out the other 8000 series posts. Cool

Nice work! That's a decent looking reel. What would that be comparable to size-wise in the 1st gen Penns?

   It appears to be between a 712 and a 720 in size.

   They came out in '69...I think they made 'em until the mid 70s.

Probably pretty close. The "A"s came out in '73.
