Shimano : replacing friction ring

Rate this topic

6 posts in this topic

If your old friction disintegrated from old age(mine is stored inside the house), try an O ring from Home Depot or Lowes. I couldn't figure out why the bail was slamming shut on my son's reel. Well it turned out the friction ring is disintegrated. Don't forget to clean out under the rotor also. Now it works great. No more bail slamming shut since it's no longer free to turn when the bail is open. It turned out all 4 reels (15 years old) are like that and it's not from the heat.

Tested out and it works great. Free spinning but does not rotate when the bail is open.20170723_175251.thumb.jpg.05d1ef948aaf58d5ecfb7d4002f3c6fc.jpg
