I dropped it in the surf. SO I had to pull it apart and clean all the sand and salt water out. Now when I release the bail to cast every once in a while the bail will not reset when cranking the handle. There are no other problems I can see with it at this time. Any tips would be great.
I believe it may have to do with the yoke springs being to strong? I lost one and have ordered a pair from Abu Garcia. For the time being I put in a couple springs I cut down. The reason I feel this may be the issue is that I replaced those with stronger springs and it is worse.
The only other thing I noticed when having it apart is the pivot that contacts the totthed wheel to re-engauge the spool is worn at the contact area. Does not appear to be enough to deam replacing the part.
Another note is that I had no problems before it took the bath in sand and salt water. I have all components in the correct place as far as I can tell from the schematics.
I am hoping to get it fixed b y the weekend for a Cobia trip in the bay. If you need any more info or pics just ask I will post what you need.
