My buddy has a lefty and I have serviced it. I don’t know if the gear pattern is reversed on the main gear and pinion, but the thread for the handle is reversed. 

 

Call Tulsa, they can satisfy your curiosity.

Not sure where you are located but if you are located in Long Island you can bring your reel to saltwaters tackle in Islip and mike will take care of you otherwise give them a ring

Call Tulsa, they did not know,, call Craig ,, he stated that the teeth are the reverse direction, but i do not think he fully understood me.  I just need a pictures for clarification .. I do know that the handle thread is reversed .

What ate you trying to figure out? The rotor spins counter clockwise on the lefty’s so the gears are cut the opposite direction.

1. I know the rotor spins the counter clockwise.

 

2. I think that the gear is cut the same, but only the handle thread is reverse,, but I need a Pictures to verify .

If the gear was cut the same way then how would the rotor spin the opposite direction... listen to Craig the guy knows what he’s talking about.

Here you go. There is no way for them to use the right handed gear and just reverse the handle thread.  See the scallopped gear teeth, it's design to go in only one direction.

Hey, is that a discounted factory blemish? They wrote their name backwards!
