Mates,
A friend of mine brought me an older model 330 that wasn't working properly.
After doing some checking it looks like the old style trip lever and the bail wire mount both had teeth missing.
I have the newer version parts for trip lever, bail wire mount, baffle plate, but don't have the older versions.
Since, I've never attempted a change over like this, I'm wondering is it possible to use these new parts to bring this older version reel back to life,
Regards,
Ted Lanham

Hi Ted,

Not being a expert on the 330's, please allow me to do a little research and provide an answer - I do know a Mitchell 330 expert.

Kind Regards,
Chris

not sure about teeth but the newer bail arm type has a different diameter shank on the the bail wire from memory you cant fit an older bail wire to a newer mount

Landkeeper,
That's something I would have never thought about till the moment I would tried to do it. I'll check that as soon as I can get around to it.

Many Thanks,
Ted Lanham

Hi Ted,
I have checked the "gear mesh" on various style bail mounts to both styles of trip levers and it appears that the teeth are all spaced the same. My only concern would be the difference between the roller style bail trip and the non roller style bail trip and the contact they make with the ramp on the baffel plate. Regardless, I have plenty of both style trip levers so if you need one just drop me a line,

Kind Regards,
Chris

Chris,
I guess, I'm just have to take the time, and set down with landkeeper's information and check the diameter shank on the bail wire to find out exactly what I may need to repair this old warrior.
If the reel was ready for the scrap yard, I wouldn't even mess with it, but it's a pretty nice piece. I think someone may have not known how these reels work and may have forced the bail open. :sAng_scream: If I find I need the old parts, I may have to get back to you.

Regards,
Ted Lanham

Hello Ted,
Attached is a picture of a Mitchell SAV
It shows the difference between an old and a new system on the 330.
The new system was mounted from the # 5591841.
It is clear that if you have to change the part # 66 it MUST ALL CHANGE by the list of parts indicated on the left of the diagrams (81063 to 81080)
Best regrets and good luck

Laroupane,
Outstanding! I believe that your attachment makes very clear what is necessary to make the conversion from the older version OTOMATIC to the new. :clap I have a small supply of parts that I will have to inventory to see if I either have everything to do the job, or seek replacements.
Thank you for the help.

Regards,
Ted Lanham

Hello Ted,
Sorry but at the end of my message I wanted to write "Best regards", I do not know why the translator put "Best regrets ", and I did not check the end of the text, as always we check the body of the text but not the beginning and the end which are often the same texts in many messages

This was not a problem. I can only imagine how some of my posts would be translated, so I do appreciate you taking the extra time to go through the process to contribute to the forum. :sSig_thankyou:

landkeeper,
:sFun_rofl:
Yes, I could, probably, find all I need in that stack of parts. My wife says I have too much junk lying around now, and she would have a "conniption fit" if she that box being delivered. :sFun_bricks:

Ted Lanham
