strikeright tideflo

Post by Bargee » Fri May 19, 2017 11:21 am

I have a battered old strikeright tideflo (the model with the brass adjustable 'drag' nut in the centre of the spool). I use it on my canal boat - it sometimes lives on the roof for a couple of weeks at a time!! I bought it specifically for that purpose and only paid £3.00 for it. I actually quite like it and despite it being battered and rusty would like to give it a bit of a service. However, I find the spool will not come off to gain access to the interior. The centre drag nut seems to be held on somehow. Anybody got a clue how to remove this? Or is it supposed to be like that?!

ah ha just got the other off really had to wind the knob hard until it stops then pull up, the knob has a hole with a flat side the pin also has been cut flat on one side got to line them up, hard to do when you can't see them but it works good luck
