Try to reassemble my Tranx 301A. This was not a full breakdown, just took it down to removing the handle/drag star/4 frame screws etc to take a look at the inside and apply some grease to the main gear. Anyway, once I get to reassembling the drag star, I'm running into the issue of my drag star also seeming to tighten/roughen up the cranking of the handle. It is progressive... fully disengaged drag = brand new reel smooth...fully tightened drag = barely a full rotation if I tap the handle and a very rough sensation/vibration of the reel in hand. Have watched and rewatched @scoobydoo 's video several as I am assembling and disassembling, I am pretty sure I have everything oriented correctly, but obviously something is off (the video is extremely helpful and detailed, I am just screwing up something). Any input would be very helpful as I am not even sure what to check at this point. My newbie guess as to what the issue is has something to do with the initial hand tightening of the tension nut and/or how it is making contact with the washer that sits between the nut/sleeve.
