Ah, that big plastic gear.  To be polite, the reel has a very "technical" look.

hey Guys, let me join to the owners of a Pflueger Pelican 1020 reels

just found this one on a local flea market, I paid $5 dlls for it, its feels good, spins freely and its not in a bad ugly shape, just some nicks and missing paint here and there other than that is a nice piece of history.

I grabbed it because the singular shape, never though it had that singular mechanism of the fixed spool, thats pretty cool, too bad any replacement part is unobtanium

mine is missing a little piece of the tip reel foot  Undecided

PS: I had hard time finding the drag adjustment on this reel, but I was pretty sure I would find it on at.com and found this thread my our frien Sal.

Here is a very good Pflueger Pelican 1020, Alex —

I broke the crank blade when getting rid of a lot of reels in bins.

You are welcome to the entire reel — or just the stand.  N/C on shipping or reel.  Just PM me your address in Calexico — and I will mail off the reel and/or stand.

Best, Fred

On painted & plastic parts I use a tooth brush and original White GOOP as a degreaser/cleaner and then a warm water and Dawn scrub with a tooth brush. Works every time. You may have to carefully wire brush rust but it is usually just on the surface from some other source like a can, bucket, etc. and goes away with the cleaners.

Thank you for advice.
goop is working well. I used kitchen cleaning sponge. most of saltwater rust cleaned. but the reel spool is more damaged. 
I was think to paint with car engine paint.

Yeah, sometimes those metal spools corrode so much that the only alternative is to sand them down and repaint them. Make sure you get all the salt removed or it will corrode right through the paint again. It's best to take your time repainting them. I would paint the bottom first and after it's good and dry mask it off and paint the top. If you try to do both at once you'll have a lot of over spray. You might want to shove some sort of stick in the hoe so you can rotate it easier while painting. Have a block of wood with a hole in it the size of the stick to hold it while drying.
