Running a little rough…


What seems to be the problem with the reel?  “Running a little rough.”  Now it could be many things and different things on different reels.  This one was fairly easy to determine.

Running a little rough

Sand and fishing reels are never good partners.  This was ultra fine sand like from a glacial river system.  Gear and pinion covered.  Drags destroyed, spool bearings were rough.

Bearings are not looking good

The good news was that they all cleaned up well even the outer gear sleeve bearing.  He must have stopped using it after the dunk. Lubed up and ready to roll.
