Help please - Penn Torque 5 - 1st Gen - trqs5b

I have a Penn Torque 1st Gen bailed that I recently had to replace the line roller and bearings after they fell off while fighting a fish. I am not sure how that happened since I did not touch that part of the reel. Anyway, $30 later after replacing the line roller and bearings, I could hear a faint clicking sound after each rotation. So, I decided to open it up and try to find the issue. I decided to soak all the metal parts in WD40 overnight and regreased and oiled afterwards. I lost one of the metal shims that I think went on the main gear (It has one silver one, I lost the gold one) and after reassembly, its not just a clicking sound anymore, it feels clunky each rotation. At first I thought something was wrong with the crosswind gear, but this was not the case. I have a bail less version and I swapped the crosswind gears and the issue continued. I said maybe the main gear is damaged somehow, so I swapped the gears and the clunkiness was gone. I noticed that since my bail less is one of the first released, it has a different main gear assembly, a tad bit thinner than the updated one. I think this is just a matter of putting shims to the main gear to avoid it from hitting the side plates. I was hoping to find out where to buy the shims for the main gear and also the shims for the main shaft since I could not find part numbers for them, please see attachment below:

There are no signs of corrosion on any of the metal parts whatsoever. I also could not find any issues with the gears, they look brand spanking new. The reel has been used less than 10 times. Please let me know. Thank you.

Pictures? You can compare with the pictures in my post. I can take more pictures of the parts for you to compare.

I added the schematics and a pic above. Thanks.

well alright, I used the shim of the main gear of a Penn Slammer III 6500, which was way too big, but nonetheless the clicking sound/feel was gone, but it was tight since the shim was thicker. I really think this is just a missing shim issue, if only I can get that part number. Thanks.

Hi Jim,

 

Thanks for that, what about for the main shaft? Just in case the faint clicking sound persists, it might help. Thank you.

Hi Adoboboy,

 

The only shims the main shaft gets is for the line lay.  The shim is part 60W-TS5 1242145.  

 

A faint clicking sound could be from the shaft changing directions when it goes up and down.  You may hear a slight click when the spool is at its lowest and highest point.  Some grease around the crosswind block and crosswind gear can dampen the sound.
