Help me get rid of serious pitting and corrosion.

Penn along Beach 65. Obviously used lots. What’s the best way to get the crusty pitting off the spool, reel foot, etc.

 

Need to open it up and grease it, and replace the drag.

 

Thanks in advance!

Strip it down,douse in wd40.

4 000 steel wool  or better yet 3m blending pads.

I would use the mild gray pad to clean it up.

get er’ done....

0000 steel wool and oil.  I use an Ultrasonic cleaner with Simple Green and water. 50/50 mix. It removes most of the corrosion and softens it up for a quick steel wool rub.
