Hi G --

Mike is right -- M&C should have these.

But the right thickness and specs are critical on these old Mitchells -- and it might be kind of expensive for just 3 spacers for shipping.

If you have not made arrangements yet, and could use 3 (Mitchell recommends 1-3, as needed) just PM your address and mailing information -- and I will send some out at N/C.

These are the shims for the Pinion, Body, under Rotor assembly -- to take out the roughness for better gear alignment on the pinion.

There are also shims for under the baffle plate, if this is what you need.  Have those too.

Best,

Fred

Self-worth is how you value yourself. It’s not based on what others think of you or the things you have (or haven’t) accomplished—it comes from within. But it’s easy to forget that our worth isn’t determined by outside forces -- each of us sets our own price.

This brings back some memories..... Cool

I was twelve in 1959 and this was the first reel that I ever took apart. It was only a year or so old, but I fished every day with it as a kid growing up in Florida...and it had a few issues.

A newspaper on the dining room table and a tin of 3in1 oil and I was off...

I will always remember the first time I had the bail spring out, and could not get it to seat back in place.....a very trying experience for a twelve year old!

Me too Rick. Those were the only reels available for me to fish with. I fished the Pensacola Beach Pier with a 300 and a 302. We had to fix them ourselves back then.

I’m new to this forum.

Upgrading to carbon fiber drag washers on 300/301 Mitchell’s

How do you know which spot the carbon washer goes in? Do you still use the other washers?
I buy the carbon drag washers off eBay. They are sold in set of 2

Thanks

Greetings, Jdurbin, from Minnesota, USA.

I myself do not use carbon fiber on my 300 and related Mitchell reels.  I know some others that do.  I look forward to their (and anybody else's) comments on your question, particularly in light of the fact that Mitchell offered many different spools for the 300, some metal and some not, and I wonder if the answer varies depending on what spool might be in use.

Pretty sure you just replace the stock washers with the greased CF. As long as they’re the same size you’re just replacing one material with another. If the kit you’re buying  has more washers than the stock reel consult with the vendor for that particular kit. If they’re thinner but the same number of washers you might need to double one up to increase the height of the stack. Other than that good general service as discussed you should be good to go

Thank you

Which type of grease do you use on carbon fiber washers?
Just apply grease to the top side?

Is Photobucket making these images blurry now so they can no longer be seen? Great tutorial and it's a shame that you can no longer use the pictures for reference.

Yep, they're hijacking photos again for a fee!

jgp12000,
You might try right clicking on a blurred out photobucket image.  The window that appears lists various choices. If you select "View Image" with your cursor, your computer should open up a separate window with a clear image.  I am using a PC.
Good Luck,

I don't get VIEW IMAGE as one of the right click options.  I have to right click, then click PROPETIES and copy/paste the URL address into a new window.

IDK, Steve, it works for me. I get a box with "Open image in new tab", "Save image as...", "Copy Image", "Copy image address", "Search Google for image", and then below a line "Inspect    Ctrl+Shift+l". You can only open one image at time in new tabs, though, but you can have multiple tabs with images.
