Does this look bad? lol Not my reel but never had a Lexa apart before. Pinion gear jammed and stuck on spool shaft. Got the pinion off and the spool shaft does NOT look right. The raised bulb like area looks like where the pinion got stuck. I plan to replace the spool assembly and pinion gear. BUT.... can I file the shaft down for a quick fix. Not my reel. Musky can be hard on tackle. Rethinking a little and may use some fine grit paper on it until the pinion will engage and release.

 Huh?   I would think the shaft would be all one diameter , without the trench in the end of the shaft .

It's supposed to look like that.Ive come across this issue with these reels. No need to replace the spool or pinion. Just buff that part of the spool shaft and inside the pinion with emery paper. It will smooth out.

You know that moment when your steak is on the grill and you can already feel your mouth watering.
Do vegans feel the same when mowing the lawn?

I have had totally neglected reels come in where the brg seized a decade ago and they just kept winding, thus leaving a step where the inner race wore the shaft.  I have saved the odd shaft by shimming out the new brg so that it locates on the nominal shaft diameter, but it depends what clearances are available.  The ideal is to chuck it in a lathe and turn the shaft down to the next size brg, like 4 to 3mm ID, or just go ghetto and pack it with JB Weld with some release compound on the inner brg race.  When you know how the reel has/will be treated it is often a WOFTAM to flog a dead horse!

This is exactly what I did and it runs great. Thanks everyone.
