I’ve had a Shimano Citica 201E for like 10 years. Had an issue with free spool that I think is unrelated to why I’m posting... it’s fixed. While looking at the other issue I had, I figure I’d clean since I had the reel opened already. I disassembled, cleaned, greased, and put it back together. It now clicks like 7 or 8 times with 1 turn of the handle. I’m thinking it’s the pinion gear/yoke. It had not been cleaned in legit like 10 years. I’m thinking by cleaning out all the crap, the worn pinion gear is now clicking. What do you guys think? Also, it’ll click with the reel in the normal reeling position (like when you’re fishing) but the sound stops when reeled with the side of the reel facing up.

Another problem is I think the pinion gear is discontinued. It’s mainly a fluking reel so it’s not like I’m casting and retrieving plugs. I can probably deal with the click. But if i can fix it the right way, why not. Thanks guys
