6500 spool release problem

Postby MAC » Mon Apr 23, 2007 2:32 pm

Hi all,

I have a 6500 premium. I am having serious trouble with the spool release. It goes into free spool no problem, but won't click back. When I turn the handle the release is not getting pushed back far enough...... Any thoughts :?:

Cheers,

Kev

Cheers for the link Pete.... Will sort that out this evening.

One of the blocks was a wee bit too small Paddy. I just put the one brake block in. Seems to be ok.
