Just wondered if anyone has removed the cork washer on the underneath of the spool of a 5001 and if so, how did you go about it?

I am interested in replacing it with carbontex.

I jist scrape them off with a chisel ó then clean off any excess with a Dremel & a sanding disc, Greg ó

Then just glue the CF in place ó clamp it for 15 minutes or overnight depending on your choice of glue.

Make sure there is no glue residue in the spool shaft hole ó clean it out if necessary ó then, if desired for extra smoothness ó apply a thin coat of Calís by working it into the grain of the CF.

   Fred, I've thought of doing the same. My concern that kept me from trying this, was that the carbon fiber may gall or eat away at the line lay adjustment that the cross pin on the shaft rides in. I've found asbestos felt washers that seem to work great & smoother than most any thing else. However I've not fished the two reels I've done this to much at all... Jeff

I have a similar question. My 5001 had the asbestos washer greased (at least that's what I think it was). I flushed it out as best I could with carb cleaner, then squeezed out as much residue as I could by putting it in a folded paper towel and squeezed it between two blocks in a vise. I thought it came out pretty clean but now it is maybe 'squeaky-clean'...it literally howls when turning the empty spool. Maybe it won't be quite so loud with line on it. Seems as if it's ringing like a bell or a crystal class with water in it. I've eliminated and replaced the washers one at a time and it's definitely seems to be the asbestos and not the cork.

Thanks
Mike

Is this the top or under spool drag washer, Mike?

Asbestos washers should never be greased.

Let me know which washer ó and I will send you a new one with your Daiwa spool and the other two DQ parts.

It's the top asbestos washer (looks like gray felt). I tossed it in the ultrasound tonight with some alcohol and more stuff came out of it and made 'tea' in the alcohol. I have no idea what sort of grease it is. I was going to give it another spin in the ultrasound in the morning.
While you're in the 5001 parts; I could really use a right-handed oscillating arm so I can convert it back to right-handed, it's set up for a lefty now.

Thanks

Just to confirm, Mike ó

So I donít assume the wrong thing hereÖ

Do you want to end up with the crank on the left side ó or the right side?

Let me know ó and I will pull the correct part.
