What tools I need for repairing SF V 4500?

4 posts in this topic

Hi there,

The last storm brought a broken rod with Spinfisher V 4500.  While it's pretty beat up outside I still want to try to restore it; not that I don't have enough projects lol. So I wonder do I need any specific tools for taking it apart or generic set of screwdrivers would be OK?

Fun little project, however as fox says the cost in parts alone to get it back to function normal would cost more than a new reel.  Right off the bat every bearing will need to be replaced, A/R, drag washers (top and bottom), handle, bail wire, most likely gear and pinion.  Basic tools will be all you need, but I expect you to have trouble removing the screws from the corrosion that most likely settled in.
