Schematics for a Shakespeare 2091

Post by vbpilot »

Hi guys,
Firstival sorry by my poor english.
I'm restoring an Shakespeare 2091 who belonged to my best companion and friend, my beloved father.
So many memories with him fishing.
I'm looking for schematics of this reel.
Thanks a lot for help.

Good Lord ! Thank you very much Mr. Steve !!!
This one was made in 1966, folowing the letter table. "EE"
I also have many Penn reels from him and we fish a lot in Brazil in fresh and salt whater when he still alive.
One more help if you please, where I can find replacement parts to it?
I'm looking for the X18 "level wind screw".

That will most likely be a difficult part to find. If you aren't already aware, it has reverse threads, i.e. left tighten-right loosen. Dick Janak should be along pretty soon, he may have one. Otherwise, you may have to find a donor reel. Those old Shakespeare spinning reel parts are few and far between. Good luck, they'e a well built reel.

Schematics for the 2052 and 2062 also show an X-18, but the screw is labeled "left-hand thread" only on the 2052 schematic. I wonder if all of these X-18s are the same screw. If so, it would be available in any reel of that maroon series.

Good catch, Steve! Some 2062 schematics also note it is left hand threaded.

I can't find any 2071, 2081 or 2091 lists where that is noted. I would imagine, since that part # is the same on all those models, that they all use the same left hand threaded screw.
