 Post subject: Mitchell 330 in trouble!
PostPosted: Fri Jan 02, 2015 12:23 pm • #  
I removed the pick up control assembly and trip lever for cleaning on an old Mitchell 330. Is there a certain way the gear teeth must mesh in order to have these parts reinstalled correctly?

Hello Micky,

There is a certain way to fix it .
I know that the whole procedure is written in the SAV catalog (1976) .I only have it in Dutch ..
Maybe one of the mates is able to post this page from a Garcia SAV catalog .

I am not sure how to enter my previous description of aligning the teeth of the 330 bail mechanism but if you type in 330 under search it will come up. Hope it helps you. The 330 has got to be my most favourite reel for all round fishing.

Thank you for sending the document on the Mitchell 330. It was very helpful just looking at the illustrations.

I finally had time to work on my Mitchell 330. Referring the document you provided, I adjusted the clearance between the rotating head inside diameter and the trip lever bearing roller with the bail closed and the pick up control assembly stowed against its stop, both screws snugged down and reinstalled the baffle plate. Initially, I set the clearance to 2.5mm (.090); however, the rotating head would not turn continuously throughout its 360 degrees of travel; it would stop at one location where I suspect the roller was incorrectly striking the plastic cam on the underside of the baffle plate. I set the clearance again to about .040 and now the rotating head turns continuously. Also, with the bail open, the clearance between the center shaft of the housing and roller is about .040. After I reassembled the reel, it functional test good. With a touch of the index finger to open the bail, the bail closes smoothly when the reel handle was turned. I bought this reel for 4 dollars. Completely disassembled and cleaned it, replaced the trip lever spring and pick up control spring, lubricated and reassembled. Works great!
