For powdercoat you need BARE metal and wet paints wont hold on anything anodized or chromed. Remember if you want your reel to FLUSH you need portals on the bottom of the rotor.

BTW, your reel looks good!

Thanks for the info! That actually was not my reel, just one that I was commenting on. Here is a pic of my recently completed 1st attempt, a 710z...nothing fancy - stripped, sanded, primed, rattle can paint, rattle can clear coat.

Make one out of aluminum. Make it slightly smaller than the original and it will fit in the groove in the housing nicely. You can bed it in RTV.

Help!....:)
Did you ever consider hardening the main gear shaft material to prevent the wear for omthe bearing rollers? I read somewhere else that there is an affordable option you can buy that let's you harden DIY style

Heard about a place in Maine that does that. I think they heat and cool it over and over to strengthen it. will look into it.

Great, can't wait to hear more results. I have a 704z coming in next week that I plan on doing the "get rid of clicking" treatment to, so the more information I see here, the better equipped I will be to not screw it up :)

I know this is a really old thread but just started my 704z. Gathering parts but need to know if you guys used the 704 bail arm or something else. Here's mine but it has that distinctive Penn downward slant. Should I just bend it into a proper position (after removal of course)? Also thought maybe a longer metal bumper?
Thanks,
Don

There's a little rubber bumper that fits in the hole on the metal stop coming off the rotor - yours is missing
Make one out of a bit of heavy rubber. issue solved

Thanks Sudsy
I updated the picture, as you can see this is not the rubber bumper/metal cap style. This is a thread stud with slotted screw end. I've seen these on other MPU's (I believe in this thread?). It is definitely a more secure way as the rubber ones have a tendency to fall out--plus there's no need as there bail arm will remain still.

Ok, the other fix is to cut a rubber washer from a bit of tire tube (or something similar), place it between the arm and the screw then tighten down the screw - it'll hold it in place well.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking--a washer. I'm going to order a cup and bumper anyway, maybe the screw bumper I have will fit in the cup.
