penn 920 levelmatic no freespool

Rate this topic

2 posts in this topic

I have a good decent condition penn 920 levelmatic laying around and i wanna use it for flounder season. Only problem is that the reel will not go into freespool. I opened her up and everything appeared fine, the freespool knob seems to be sticky.

 

any suggestions would be awesome!

the levelmatic is a tedious reel to work on. you almost need 3-4 hands to put it together. you can also shimmy in three of the #6-60 penn washers into the main gear, but the washer underneath the gear needs to be hand cut.

 

the other problem is that the frame is not unitized. under a load and/or if the drags are sticky, then the frame can torque pretty badly and the spool can rub against the frame. sometimes you can twist it in your hands and straighten it out, often not. like i said, they're very tedious to work on. alan
