My brother gave me an old 314 that belonged to an uncle that died in the sixty's. Anyway it has c.a.p. on the back side and Garcia Mitchell on crank side. Stock or replaced? Sorry i don't know much about these. And would love to know the retrieve ratio if someone has that.

Hi backwater, I would say from what you've said in your post that your 314 is original . As far as the gear ratio start at a spot that you know where the bail line guide is at , now take note where your handle is at , turn your handle one complete revolution , while counting how many times your bail line guide went around, that will give you the gear ratio. Best of luck and regards. John in Pa. :sCh_fisherman:

Hi backwater, I checked 2 of my 314s and the gear ratio seems to be around 3.25/1 , regards John in Pa. :sCh_fisherman:

backwater, there should be a serial number on either the back of the body housing or on the bottom of the foot. We can get pretty close on the year of manufacture from the SN.

I don't know if any maintenance videos for the 314.

my uncle's reel s.n. is 02843? on back of reel, Garcia Mitchell 314 on left (crank side) and has a bigger (longer)bail trip. Thought i needed a few things for it but works fine after i cleaned it. Bought another one online because i thought i could use it for parts but now thinking of getting it going. it's a CAP also SN is on foot 0478730, no Garcia. It has the smaller bail trip but needs a bail trip spring and handle assembly. Its rotating head was bent along with the grip screw broke off in handle. I got the head straight but still needs handle and bail trip screw. One question is how do you separate rotating head from gear housing? I took every thing apart, removed axle, bail trip hex nut and bail trip but no go. Thanks for reading this.

Imgur is a good, free photo hosting site...create an account, add photos to Imgur that are 750 pixels wide, then click on the Img button above when in reply mode, copy the photo in Imgur and paste between the Img brackets in the body of the post reply...
