That should hold up preety good, esp. cleaning it twice before applying primer. I wanna powder coat(hot coat) mine but afer the quote i got today i may choose a differen't path. The guy wanted three hundred to do four reels so i gotta find someone more reasonable. God bless your dad for still swinging a rod at seventy. I hope i'll be doing that!

The biggest contributor to a bad paint job, for me anyhow, has been not being anal about cleaning the aluminum really, really well right before etching primer. Last reel I used sodium hydroxide(lye) to make sure the thing was super clean. Be careful with the stuff, but it certainly cleans the aluminum. Washed and poured some vinegar on it to neutralize it, and then washed it again. Dried with a heat gun and used an etching primer. That reel is getting tested this season. The limited use it has seen testing plugs is looking good, but it hasn't been beat, dropped, or banged around yet. It will, but I have a feeling it will hold up, but only time, and a mess of fish peeling off drag, will tell. If it doesn't hold up, then it gets stripped again. Mine is about a 1963 fixed handle 700 and has lots of years left in it.

If your gonna be dunking it yes completley pack it till it's comming out the sides. Use blue marine grease, and you'll probably wanna take it down every couple trips and re-lube.

That's exactly what i was doing(that's preety good grease). Now with the added bearings i may need to instal zirc fittings and seal it really good. I'm even thinking gasket for the plate.

I have bought a bunch of them on ebay. They are pretty bullet proof particularly if you are going to restore

Since the main gear and ratchet (anti-reverse) are almost impossible to find brand new i would recomend to wait until e-bay has one listed NIB(new in box). It's gonna suck to drill a brand new reel. If you buy a used one make sure to ask the seller about the main gear!

I also never use the A.R., so on this one i just did away with it entirely and filled the hole with aluminum.

As far as grease, i coat everything inside with SuperLube. I also coat the shaft and nut inside the rotor cup before i put the spool on. I think packing the reel to the hilt with grease is overkill, but then again, i take my reels apart every3 or 4 trips anyway.

Differant strokes for differant folks.......
