Figured out how to take off side plates. Going to clean it up get rid of corrosion on bottom reel seat. Any tricks on gear side plate i should look out for? Very familiar with jigmaster and 1/0, 2/0 senators. On the outside looks the same

Never heard of a "580." Is the "5" actually a "9" and is a 980?

Here is my post on the 970 (same diameter plates with narrower spool):

Side plate clicker is loose on 980 so the copper colored circle does not engage spool teeth to click. Repair solution for this 980 side plate???

Do you mean the anti-reverse dog?  Part number 15-570 on the schematic?

There is supposed to be a spring to hold it in place.
