Penn 349h - dog spring orientation

Rate this topic

11 posts in this topic

Does anyone have a schematic for a Penn 349h ? The only thing I can find online are based off the 149 and they use a different dog and dog spring.

 

I was given an old one and I'm attemping to resurrect it. I have parts I just can't get the orientation correct or location perhaps of the dog and spring. When I do get it setup it clicks loud in freespool or when retrieving. Just can't be right.

 

thanks!!

If memory serves, the dog spring can only fit in the side plate one way, because of the uneven lengths of the legs after the hairpin bend.

I'd chat it up with Moe, over at Scott's Bait and Tackle. they have a site.

He's "up there" in the knowledge dept with Penns.

On the earlier models, the 349 dog srping looks like the letter "U" with a circle on one end. It can be tough to get it just right.

 

I got one to work after bending a few copper strips and playing with it.

 

The schematic that is supplied on here shows the dog spring on the newer versions, a strip that is bent into an "L" position".

 

If I get time, I'll take my 349 apart and snap a shot.

First of all thanks to everyone for the assistance thus far. I seem to have to only made matters worse with this spring. Perhaps I have bent it too much or I'm having a brain fart and installing incorrectly.

 

I feel stupid.

 

Marlinmate shed any light on which position is correct?

Well took a bit of trial and error, but bent it around enough to prevent constant contact of the dog and still allow for proper operation.

 

I really appreciate the help Marlinmate! highfive.gif
