I have two C3 6500s that when I manually spin the spool the anti-reverse catches at different places. Can these be rejuvenated by cleaning and oiling and if so what kind of oil, or should I simply replce them. These are two reels I picked upon flea bay and I want to go through them before I start fishing with them.

Sometimes they can be if not too far gone...just clean the cages and rollers and I use hot sauce

They are well worth rebuilding.

These are older 2 speed reels. I'm not at all familiar with those or how it works, so maybe some internet research is in order. I talked to Dads Ole Tackle and they told me these use anti-reverse dogs instead of one way bearings, also a new animal to me.

If it just has the ar dog it is just an arm that rides on the star wheel that's on the handle shaft and bites when you try to roll the handle backwards

Yeah the older style have a lot more play in them than the ones with the bearings. I have read you can upgrade to the star wheel that has more teeth (forget what series has it) and there isnt as much play. Alantani.com is great resource.

install one way bearing and the problem is solved, believe I paid around $13 for the last one I purchased.
