This is cool the warranty is still in affect. I hope if anyone else reading this has any of the older Teton reels that this helps. The following is the reply I received from WJ Senecal.
"Please see attached. Yes I have parts and service reels. Thanks Bill

Teton USA has forwarded your recent request for reel repair service to our company, W J Senecal Co. Our company is the Teton USA Authorized Repair Center for the older style Teton reel products, which were made by the former Teton Reel Company of San Andreas, CA.
W J Senecal Co was the first Manufactures Representative for the original Teton Reel Co. We have been fishing and servicing Teton products for over 15 years. Many of the reels have been fished in both fresh and saltwater over 100 days with very little service required. Over these years we have seen and repaired most items that can go wrong with these well designed reels.
All standard repairs will be disassembled, cleaned, minor worn parts replaced, lubricated and reassembled. The drag system, and spool attachment will be adjusted to the original factory specifications. Attached is a repair form listing the most typical repair charges. This form must be completed and included with your damaged reel. Please remove the fly line and backing to avoid damage during cleaning.
Special damages, such as a stuck spool, missing parts, and minor bent frames and spools will require additional fees as noted. You will be contacted by email before these additional repairs are made. If you do not consent to the additional charges, your reel and payment will be returned to you, minus a $5.00 return postage fee. Please allow 2 - 3 weeks for repaired reel return. We also accept Pay pal, account firstname.lastname@example.org
Every possible effort will be made to insure that you have a fully fishable reel that you are proud to own.
