Yes, I had a couple of them and I know that I switched one from right to left. I would need a picture of the inside to be able to remember how it is done. Mine were anti reverse reels, is that what we're talking about?

Using the correct Philip's screw driver; remove the screw holding the pawl in place. Change the direction of the pawl opposite to what it is curently pointed (from pointing left to pointing right) and put the retaining screw back. Try the reel....................

I think that's all there is to that kind.

If that isn't the quick fix then you will need to remove the 2 screws that hold the bracket retaining the offset drag gear. The gear may need to be flipped over to change directions.

There is nothing you can really mess up so long as you work on a nice flat surface and don't drop any screws You may have to do both the flip the gear and change the slant of the click pawl.

No, I've got mine right in front of me and it's even easier than that.

All you do is slide the center gear up off the center spindle, flip it over, and slide it back on. No need to unscrew anything. The one-way clutch is built into the gear assembly, and when you turn it upside down you reverse the direction of the clutch.

I just did it on my own reel to be sure it works, and it does.

That's the stuff Mouch,

This is when we see how the forum can work to help with a question. With so many people and so many reels out there there's always someone who can help. I sent you some Rep for that answer

Good one,

Ard
