    4 and 5 are metal and embedded in grease. The cover (1 = #8242) is on the right side of the reel. The bearings are very small and the spacer Alan spoke of is tiny.

    Thank you Belly. in truth I'm so mechanically challenged I dont get half what they said about spacers and gears. Those two gears looked like plastic in this picture ,especialy #5, and I wanted someone to tell me. Now I know they are both metal. Thank you [​IMG]

    This is why I will never ever look or touch inside a reel I have no clue what i would be doing.

    Some kind of aluminum on the gears #4 and #5.
    On the spacer is kind of teflon.

    yeah im with you. i might try and service a US-made star drag reel (i.e. not my ocea)...since then if i embarass myself ill just send it in. by might i mean i likely won't.
