You can do this to it.

I don't think Powerpro works well with the older reels. Fireline and Stren SuperBraid is what I have on some of mine and it seems to work well. Keep the wrap tight. If not the line will dig into itself when your drag is working and you have a nice fish on the other end.

I've tried the teflon drag washers that the exploded view shows for an alternate to the original and I don't like them. The drag washer is about .1 inch thick. Stacking 3, 704 washers will work. I'm experimenting with some carbon fiber friction material I was able to get a small sample of. Another option is Smooth Drag washers. Give them a call and see what they have that can stack up to about .1 thk.
