View Full Version : Penn 706

I'm thinking of restoring a 706. It has several layers of paint on it so I'm probably going to have it bead blasted or something along those lines before paint. Besides the obvious, is there any hardware that I need to remove before this process? i.e housing bushings, pawl, etc...

Thanks, Matt

If your going to bead blast remov everything.It's a easy reel to work with.Even if you use a stripper completely dissasemble.Ther is a fiber bushing in the housing for the reverse lever and a rubber under the rotor that might get damaged

Thanks for the answer, I'm not sure if I posted this question in the correct area or not...I'm still getting used to this site. I have a couple more questions though, Im not sure what the part is called but it's the small coned shaped that sits on the rotorcup below the line roller assembly, does that get removed? and how? And what about the internals of the spool? Just leave em?

Thanks again, Matt

Line retainer is what i call it.If you use stripper leave it in.
