Bought some used Daiwa SG27LC Line counters and gave them a once over before they go into use which includes a good cleaning and lube. Needed to put some new dragmaster drag washers in this one. Let me know if anybody else has a interested I can give a few pointers or do it for you for a small fee.

OK first OFF. The reason I needed to learn how to do this is got about a 50% success ratio of buying a used Daiwa SG27LC and it being in usable condition from the internet. Most times it looks like its been in the bottom of a row boat left on the lake for 10 years and never cleaned. These tips are enough to clean and put back together and function enough to fish for many more years to come.
    Need to have Clutch
    Lever on to get the spring Clutch Spring to stay put to put the halves together !!! It takes me hours to figure this little detail out.
    [list=2][/list]Drag Spring Washers
    are concave and high ends
    need to touch each other so it acts like a spring.
    [list=3][/list]When you put the reel back together don't forget to adjust the cast control knob for smooth reeling.
    [list=4][/list]In the picture I had way to much grease on the newly installed aftermarket Dragmaster carbon fiber drag disks. I disassembled and cleaned all four of these and washers by wiping them down so only a ever so slight film was left on these parts. Read other clean them with cleaner and install dry. I have more sets of these Dragmasters for my steelhead rods with SG47LCs and the next set I put in I'll try polishing the brass mating surfaces and install dry.
    Attached are pictures for first 3 points.

    This may make a good mini-workshop for March, Ron. Not sure how many have actually seen the guts of a reel before. I have tinkered with old ones which if didnt function again it was cool, but have not gotten the nerve to do it to one of my good ones.

    I second Tim's idea. We are always looking for people to share with the club, this would make a GREAT mini seminar.

    OK with such interest I studied some more the proper way to clean and lubricate a Daiwa SG27/47LC Reel. I personally attempted to buy all the proper materials and went through all 6 on my made in Japan 25 year old reels (Most were never touched and worked fine) to assure I can do this very constantly. I will share my learnings at the March mini workshop. I will also offer a service for a small fee but encourage member to learn and do their own!
