Re: Abu Garcia 6500 c3 - need help
You were not steered wrong. The Ambassaduers are tanks. Your problem could be a couple different things:
1. weak, missing or incorrectly installed drag spring washers. They should look like this () when stacked.
2. Grease/oil contamination on the drag washers.
3. Line slipping on the spool. This is unlikely unless you are spooled with braid.
4. mis-assembled parts elswhere in the crank assembly
PM or email if you need more help
