Open it up, see what makes it tick! Clean thoroughly, grease, do the oil trick to the spool bearings, see what she does for ya! It's all good 'n' fun!
I was just fiddlin' with it this evening. I machines a small plate out of 1/8" aluminum. The OD fits the red plastic end plate bore precisely and rests flat on the 6 ribs. The ID is well clear of the clicker mechanism so there are no mods at all to the original parts. I milled 6 equally spaced shallow pockets .040" deep for the magnets (just some 1/4 x 1/16 I had layin around) With them stacked 3 high, they are quite close to and really brake the spool ... probably too much, but easy to go back from there. Many combinations available. If I find a range where I like it, I might make it adjustable from the outside.Arnav...That little squidder can be made to fly. It's biggest problem is slow retrieve speed.
Well I'll be danged. I thought she said "break a leg", she actually said breakAWAY !Mrs. Santa says for me to expect a surprise ! Bless her heart, I cant wait !
Well I finally got a chance to dig into the Okuma. There is nothing inside. No mags or c-brakes, just the endplay knob.Open it up, see what makes it tick!
