Alcedo spinning reel drag.

Post by flysupplies »

Has anyone taken apart the drag assembly on an Alcedo spool or know how to do it? Looks pressed in. Thanks

It is doable, and yes, the retaining ring is pressed in.


Use a small punch the size of the main shaft and insert it from the underside. If you use the correct size it will catch on the flat area of the metal washer. Being careful, tap the punch with a hammer and if the retaining ring moves spin the washer so the flat part is in another location. Keep doing this until the ring pops out completely.
Love those Open Face Spinning Reels! (Especially ABU & ABU/Zebco)
