Default Re: Repair old Garcia reel?

Interesting
What I found was that the cast Delron disk drag plate on about 1/2 of these reels shattered over time. Even on newer reels right in the box. The part is no longer made and old stock has long ago sold out due to this being such a common problem.
I'd take it apart first to see if in fact this is the problem before giving up.
