it's a fairly straight forward reel to work on. just a few little tricks to get it apart. here's the link to the schematics....


and here's the reel.

to remove the left side plate, flip up the turnkey dial (key #1510) and turn it counter clockwise until you can pull the entire left side plate assembly (key #1509) off.

set the left side plate and spool aside.

let's pull the handle and star, including the handle nut plate screw (key #795, the handle nut plate (key #1993), the handle nut (key #797), the handle (key #1994), and the star drag (key #1486).

now remove the star drag spring (key #1106), the star drag nut (key #1365), the star drag spacer (key #1289), and the two drag spring washers (key #15).

remove the right side plate screws. note that three are short (key #786) and one in the 6 o'clock position is long (key #1998).

remove the left side plate screw/multi-purpose screw (key #987).

pull the thumb rest (key #2044) straight forward. this is the tricky part.

the right side plate assembly (key #1997) will now lift straight up.

you now have full access to the right side plate.

here's a neat little trick. the main drive gear (key #1213) is often stuck! put the handle back on, grab the main gear and twist the handle back and forth at the same time your lift the main gear off.

i've lined up the drag washer A (key# 1214), the drive gear (key #1213), drag washer C (key #1212), the key washer (key #1211), and the roller clutch inner tube (key #1206).

the carbontex washer that you need is the calcutta 200 drag set. it fits a bunch of different reels!

throw a thick coat of drag grease on both carbontex washers....

and rebuild the gear cluster.

lube the right side plate bearing (key #194).

the right side plate (key #1997) drops straight down.

push the thumb rest (key #2044) straight back and into place.

re-install the left side plate multi-purpose screw (key #987).

re-install all four right side plate screws (key #786 and 1998). the long screw goes in the 6 o'clock position.

re-install the drag spring washers (key #15) in a "()" configuration. then install the star drag spacer (key #1289) and star drag nut (key #1365).

install the star drag spring (key #1106) and the star drag (key #1486). push the star drag straight down onto the drive shaft (key #1491) until it clears the "shoulders" of the drive shaft.

push the handle (key #1994) down until it rests on the "shoulders" of the drive shaft, add a little grease and tighten down the handle nut (key #797).

install the handle nut plate (key #1993) and screw (key #795).

lube the right spool bearing (no key #).

lube the left side plate bearing (key #194).

re-install the spool and left side plate and you're done!
