Van staal issue

Had my vs 250L serviced this past winter and after using the reel for a bit I noticed oil leaking from the line roller screw. It looks like the screw is damaged as you can see in the photo I have attached. The bottom portion is flat while the rest is round or is this normal? Could this cause oil to leak from that area?  Owner of shop said sometimes it is normal after a service that something like this could happen and not to worry about it but I just noticed today the screw doesn’t look right to me.
 

The roller is spinning freely and not making any noise

The shaft on the line roller is keyed to fit the pick up arm. That is normal. Not sure what they put in that is leaking.

So you’re saying That flat spot I circled in the photo of the screw is normal?

Yup

Thanks for the info. Not sure what’s leaking either but after I make a few casts and the roller spins some dark grey fluid/oil is coming out of that spot. I’ll keep fishing it and see if it goes away

I just checked my 250L and 150L for that flat spot. Neither of mine have it. Not sure if yours is normal or if mines is abnormal....

Here is a VS roller from my parts. Granted it is an old part.

The shaft is keyed so it doesn’t spin in the pick up arm. Maybe some shafts have the threads keyed and some don’t?
 

No big deal.
