    What's missing from this picture?:)
    It's been like this for a couple years (no one knows what happened or where the clicker lever went) so I figure it's time to get it fixed and back on duty.
    I need an entire clicker assembly it looks like to me.

    I need to start doing my own servicing and I want to get these parts.
    Wondering if PENN parts direct is my best option.
    I would like to use the services of a local shop if there is a good option near me for getting Penn parts.
    Any input appreciated.

    Jeff, Take it apart to see if the nut is inside. Unless someone removed the end it has to be inside.

    I'll have it on the bench this week hopefully but I don't hear anything when I shake it around. I think the only thing inside would be the locknut and that could be wedged or stuck in gresse.
    We shall see.

    Yeah hopefully there Is grease in there. You can get it done ,I do mine every winter, although 130's they are basically the same. Cal's or Penn Muscle grease has always worked good for me.

    I ordered some Cal's but I need to get educated up on how much and where.
    Does Cal's go in shafts, gears and spindles or just where drags are involved? If regular bearing grease goes in also. Where not to use it?
    I am past due on my knowing this stuff but never too late.
    Youtube and the interweb will be a big help.

    Cals only on the drags.

    Yamaha blue grease or equivelent everywhere else.

    Thinner oil inside the bearings.

    Good deal. I didn't realize that they were out of production. I have a 80TW myself so I just grabbed the last one and will stick it with the rest of my parts incase I ever need it.

    Cal's is here.
    Standard bearing grease on the rest of the parts that need it.
    I'll be opening the old 80 up tomorrow.
    Some Alan Tani and youtube videos tonight.

    That's kind of funny even though i use it. I have for many years cleaned my drag washers down with acetone to get rid of any grease that was on them. :)

    Tore it down. Cleaned the drags and gave them some Cal's. Cleaned out the old grease and freshened it up. I feel like I went a little light on the Cal's and a little heavy on the grease.
    Reassembled in reverse order while cleaning threads and also doing away with some minor corrosion here and there.
    A new clicker assembly was the original need but now the reel is serviced.
    I think I'll have it apart again. I think I overtightened the clicker. It doesn't feel right.
    I kind of plodded my way thought it. Next time will be easier I figure.

    Light on drags and heavy on everything else sounds spot on to me. I used to use corrosionX spray on the internals before throwing everything back together and it really helped cut down on internal corrosion. I am hard on equipment, YMMV.
