Low profile casting reel with high speed gears and 7 bearings. Local reel that has been used hard and dunked in the local glacial streams more than once.
Outside looks dirty and silty if that is a word. Worm gear is filled and every crevasse is filled. Im not optimistic about the inside at this point.
As I expected. This fine silt throughout the reel and a lack of lubrication. I see no corrosion so at least it all comes apart well.
So out of the 7 bearings in this reel, four need to be replaced. Both spool bearings, the pinion bearing and the drag sleeve bearing. The anti-reverse bearing is in good shape and the two handle bearings will be operational. Customer invested a couple of hundred dollars for this reel and now if need at least $45.00 worth of parts plus labor. If you dunk your reel, be sure to run fresh water over it for awhile when you get home to help minimize the damage from the silt and water intrusion. Now lets see how she cleans up after an ultrasonic bath. I was surprised to see one carbon fiber drag washer and one composite washer. I will be replacing the composite with carbon fiber, both greased.
