I brought 5 reels spinning reels for AU$50:00, the above reel was with this lot, with a full spool of 8 strand 50Lbs braid, the drag dog was not engaging, so I fully stripped the reel, although the internal area was quite clean & sand free, the area under the rotor, had quite a bit  of corrosion, including the two drag dogs, after servicing that area, & placing the reel back together.
     I found, as pulling line of the drag would increase very quickly till locking up, so I sent a picture of the drag washers as they came out to Elpascadour, Wayne, he was under the pump a bit so he took the drag washers out of his 750 reel & sead this is how they are so try it, quote-hex washer,delrin teflon, keyed, cf, hex,cf, keyed, so I done that & the reel now works a treat.
     As the schematics did not show much on this area of the reel, maybe someone else will get some value from this, thanks again Wayne, your a great reel mechanic, cheers Don.

Don,

Man, to be able to help in ANY way vs dumping my reels, I was unable to put back together, ziplock’d in bags sent to Fred, Sal - May God rest is soul, Bryan or Dominick, makes me feel involved!

I was at SFO waiting for our 5:50 AM flight to Seattle, bound for Minneapolis then Bismarck, ND, saw your email and thought, I think I can help you.

I pulled up the schematic on the Mysticparts.com site, here:

https://www.mysticparts.com/Assets/images/pennparts/schematics/850ss.pdf

Emailed it to you with these instructions...

And after viewing the schematic, it was easy to see!!!

From the bottom,

HEX Washer
Teflon - part # 56T is the white teflon washer
Key Washer

Keyed

DONE.  

the photos below are from Don, and the drag stack he put together.

What other projects need my help!!!! Grin

Wayne

These reels really benefit from a drag upgrade. Plenty on the 'bay
