Default garcia mitchell 350...in need of a part.

ive had an old reel for a year now sitting in a bucket in pieces..the side plate on the left/crank side reads...garcia mitchell 350....under that is what looks like a date or maybe gear ratio.....its stamped just like this...5/1....the right hand side plate says made in france along the bottom....a little lever with a spring in it is bent and all torn up. i believe this is the anti reverse lock lever...the part that keeps the crank and spool from going in reverse. i gotta empty the digital camera to take a picture of it..ill post a pic of the part in the morning, as well as the whole reel itself....any help as the date or best usage..i.e. lb test reccomendations and how sturdy is this reel, what is it cappable of..is the drag suficient for 20lb bass?

Jimi I think i might have one. Its basically a 300. Great little reel. I think many parts are interchangable. Thats an anti-reverse clutch. The replacement part was 29 cents in 1949.
I spool them with 10 pound braid. The 306 is the better size for stripers. I still use the 302 eggbeaters sometimes.
I wouldn't doubt that it could hold up to a 20 pound striper. Sure would be fun.
There are some interesting posts on the history of the open faced spinning reel in the reference library.

The "fast retrieve" version (ratio 5/1) of the "300" was baptised "Rapid" in 1956. In April 1957 a decision was reached to add a number to the name of each existing model. The first born "Mitchell" became "Mitchell 300", the "Salt Water" received number "302" engraved on its side-plate, and the "Cap" will be for ever known as the "304". The "Otomatic" was changed to "Otomatic 330" and later to "Mitchell 330". The "Rapid" changed into "Mitchell 350 5/1". At the request of Garcia, Mitchell incorporated the shipping number that was assigned to different models, for ordering purposes, to be used as the model number for the respective reel.
