Okuma Reel Question

Recommended Posts

I recently found a Okuma CT305Da reel that I was looking for for quite a while, and bought it even though it was broken.  I got all the parts and new drags from Tuna Tom, cleaned it all up, and got it working really nice............... except for 1 thing. The line counter is running backwards. I didn't touch the counter, but for all I know it was working that way before I got it, as some gears and the worm shaft were bent or stripped, and I couldn't try it before I repaired the broken gears. I was just going to replace the counter, but  looked on TT's website and the counter is back ordered from Okuma and just looking on Google gave me 2 hits, Tuna's and a guy in British Columbia which I'd rather not go to.  Any suggestions on how to get it going the right direction?  I'm sure at some point it had to run the right way, and something must have spun inside it, and there's a trick to getting it right, kind of like getting a recoil on a lawn mower working.

They decrease. Instead of going from 1-9   they go from 9-1

They are supposed to go that way when retrieving. Letting out goes from 1 to 9.

I just figured that out also. I guess I'm the reason Polish jokes were created.

Ya, at least sszoldra has a good sense of humor :lol:

I grew up on Polish jokes. There's nothing funnier than laughing at yourself. Too bad those days are gone.
