Guys

ive just been out for a session with my new 6501's

i cannot find a helpfull guide anywhere or in the manual on how to clean the reel after a session

i can find plenty of guides that go through step by step on how to full strip it down to service it but not on what im after

ive read a few posts on running the whole reel under clean water then re oiling ( is this not bad for the bearings and and drag discs ) and other posts just saying a quick wipe down

can someone please advise

i dont wanna leave my reels too long before cleaning then

big grin

A warm wash under running water, then shake of the surplus water and dry. Lightly oil when dry
Salt water is more corrosive than fresh water so the idea is to wash any salt deposits on the reel.

Its a bad idea to wash them under running water mate suprise as it will wash all the sand /debris into the gears and runnings of the reel , just wipe over with a damp cloth winking

Good tips there lads ;

A guide for you m8y with pics. http://anglingdiary.co.uk/servicing-abu-garcia-6500c3ct-elite-multiplier/

I service my own reels. Stripped my blue yonder last night, rocket fueled up and ready to go today. The only thing i will say is when you do it yourself watch the cir clips as the buggers can ping out and be lost forever when i first done it myself laughing Will report later how it went winking

thanks for the reply reel wizard big grin and cuckoo at least you know definitively too now

thats exactly what i needed and the reels have now been cleaned up.

i like taking things apart and putting them back together so intend to fully service them every 3 months,

whats the best grease for these. will normal car grease be sufficient or shall i get reel specific grease. Will this just be rebranded car grease or will it have specific properties to assist with reels lasting longer

Normal car grease won't suffice, go for the maker recommended lubricant although it may be dearer it will be cheaper in the long run.

After saying that I remember when my young lad was learning to use a multiplier, he kept on birdnesting it untill I packed it with waterpump grease. (that slowed it down).

Don't you do this as it was an old reel that I wasn't too worried about.

i actually got some daiwa stuff before i see this post. its a dark blue colour is it as good as the stuff you recommended

ive just tried to completely strip my 6501C3 and there are 2 things i cant seem to remove

the first is the level wind gear/cog. The big white one. On my old 6501 it was easily removed by pressing two ends outwards

there is no c clip retaining the gear and it cannot be removed by pressing the 2 plastic ends outwards

the second is removing the 1 way bearing ??

anyone advise on how to remove these bits

Hi Buttonz,

I agree with Reelwizard on this one, I use 6500's and 6501's, had 2 of em

over 25yrs and only replaced the bearings twice.

As Mr Punch would say " That's the way to do it " big grin big grin big grin
