Langley Parts

Post by Terry Battisti »

Hi All,

Well, I purchased several reels off of eBay the other week. To be exact I got 16 reels for $16, buying them with the thought of using them all as parts reels. Nearly all of the reels are missing handles, some are missing screws, and some bearing caps. Out of the 16 reels, 11 of them are various Langleys, which I would like to restore.

Where the heck do I find parts for the reels? I tried to buy a bunch of parts off of eBay a couple weeks ago and got outbid at the last second. That would have helped. So, now I come to you all to find out if there's anyone on here who has extra parts they'd sell.

Thank you all for your time.

Terry

Try Dick Janak if you don't hear from anyone.

Terry, you are trying to find the toughest part for about any old casting reel… handle snd bearing caps. Unfortunately, i don’t have those in bulk although i might have the odd part in the parts bin. I do have a ton of certain parts, given to me by Dave Gaustad, who found them af some San Diego sale. Have some spools, pawls, springs, pillars, feet, and spindle bearings as shown. If you need any of those, lmk.

Dang John! Wow. Thank you. What I need to do is go through all of these reels and figure out a parts list. I just got done cleaning a couple Lurecasts and a Streamlite. Here are the parts I need for those.

Lurecast: Foot (1) and levelwind tube.
Streamlite: Crank nut (not a crank screw), Foot (1), Spool (1)

I have another Streamlite in the soup right now. It was the reel I bought the entire lot for as it appeared to be an aluminum colored one. It didn't show its true self until I got it apart and saw the inside of the reel where the headplate attaches. It was faded black, which I assume was the color of the reel before it was baked in the sun. Oh well, I got it for $1.

If you can help with any of these parts, it would be great.

Thank you again, John!!!

Terry

I've got a black Streamlite and an olive green Speedcast I'd part with since I'm not into lashers. Both seem to have all the parts and work, but I'm truly not into those things so I don't know exactly how well they do work. Probably need a thorough cleaning & some tweaking, though.

Good morning Tommy D! What would you like for them?

Seconding Dick Janak. My ‘bone pile’ can’t help for those parts. Will watch for your list.
