So I picked up another 300 today, owner said the anti-reverse wasn't working.
After taking it apart, it seems like the anti reverse was lose in the housing. I not sure if the wire spring is broke or not.
Anyone have a picture that can show me the way to put it back together, or if I need a new one?
Thanks,

strangms

I forgot to add, that this one is a 7th version in the 9 million range, it's Hard to read the serial number. I'm thinking it was made in either 69 or 70.

I may have it fixed, but would love to see a picture anyway.

srangms,
If your reel has a plastic a/r dog, try looking at the pictures of the 9th version 300 in the "Gallery". One pic shows the bottom of the dog sticking out from under its gears.
If that isn't any help, I'll post a pic.
Regards,
Ted Lanham

Thanks Ted,
That does help. So maybe I do have it in correct.
I was wondering if the spring looked bent?

Anyway this one is going to be de-greased and new grease applied. It's a little sluggish when you turn the crank.

strangms,
The spring does look bent. You might try bending it in the opposite direction.
Also, needs a good cleaning and light oiling.

I was having trouble with the pin that holds the a/r dog leg in place, so I put some blue lock tight on it. We will see if that keeps it from coming back out.
Also cleaned all the parts and put some new grease, runs smoother then before.

strangms,
It looks like you got the cleaning part mastered.
