Bought this reel at a garage sale the other day. Looked pretty trashed out but for $5:00, What the heck.

Took it home, tore it down(Lots of Lubriplate all through it). Cleaned everything up, put a little hot sauce where it needed to go, cleaned the drag washers up and put everything back together.

Everything thing looked pretty good, free spool was nice(Spool spun like a top when it was diengaged. Engaging the spool from free spool worked just fine.

Now this is what bugs me, I have no drag, at all. I can tightened down on the star drag enough where I can rotate the spool when I'm turning the handle but thats it. I can cranck don all the way on the star drag till you can't turn it any more and you can take one finger and turn the spool.

What did I do wrong? I'm puzzled!!!

Thanks,
Roger

Unfamiliar firsthand with the reel, but it appears as though there is/are no belleville washer/s in play. Was there at least one belleville in the reel.
Just in case you are unfamiliar with the belleville term: those are the washers with the square hole in the them that are cupped, to be a spring.
In industry, and in Abu 7000's, Penn 340/345 reels, they have round holes.
Which see:

Hope this helps. rock on........Kennie Dee.

you should have 2 flat washers plus the 2 bellville washers that ken is talking about, 1 flat next to drag washer then the bellviles edge to edge then another flat one , this should give you drag, if you do not have a schematic for the reel go to the schematic section and print yourself 1 up for reference.
good luck

Here's something else that's happening. I took the sideplate off and put the star drag and the handle on the reel and rotated the handle. The handle and spool will turn but hen you crank down on the frag nothing happens. The spool just turns like there's no drag applied ot it.

Help Mister Wizard,
Roger

Hio, Roger....Unable to tell if the bellevilles are oriented (), or )( .....
either or is normally ok, but not )), or ((.
Looks like you have the 'spacer' washers OK, one under and one over the bellevilles.
The photo seems to show a large space between the big washer in the main gear, and the top of the main gear. According to the schematic, the big metal washer needs a square hole in it. Is this so, or did somebody switch it out for a roundy hole?
Is there a drag washer inside? # 32. Maybe over time the first owners changed it out for a thinner one, or left it out altogether?
If there is a washer inside, perhaps it's all crudded up?
Referring to the schematic as per above link, is washer # 34 there?
After that, not being familiar with the 'finicky' parts on this model, I yield to the more familiars.
