OK I have been repairing my own reels for years. But this one has me stumped. Been repairing this one for some time now. This is what it does. If i reel real fast then stop quickly the spool keeps going with clicking sound. pinion gear has been replaced. Everything is put together right. Any ideas would be great.

 

Thanks

The spool and pinion gear are trying to catch up with each other. Other reels do this too. If it doesn’t do it when Fishing its fine. Keep the spool tension as close as you can without losing freespool.

If it does it while fishing its the spool and or pinion gear. You replaced the pinion gear already. On conventional reels you can adjust the “jack” to be sure the pinion gear is pushing far enough out towards the spool. Your “jack” is the hold down plate. Maybe you can bend the Stainless Steel leaf springs down towards the yoke so it will be tighter. Remove the hold down plate to do this. 

 

Many Newell reels do this. The Penn Baja Special does it too.
