I have a question, regarding the spacers in the spool tension knob, or actally the lack there of. On the website here:http://www.abugarcia.com/view_schematic.php?s_id=1719&id=239.240.1716#
note part #s 57 and 58.
I never saw them in my Revo STX, and figured I had lost them, and was fixing to order replacements, but now I notice in your breakdown of the reel, they are not present in your STX either.
So, do I need them, or not? I STRONGLY believe my reel DID NOT come with these spacers, I do all my cleaning on a card table, and the reel does not move from the card table till it is fully reassembled, I would have noticed these parts.
I am having an issue with the spool tension knob. In order to get enough tension out of it to keep a 1/4 lure from pulling line out, I have to tighten it all the way down to just 3 or 4 clicks from being all the way tight. 2 clicks less and the lure will almost free fall and cause a sizable backlash when it hits the ground.
This started after a routine cleaning, at first I figured I over lubed it, so I removed all the lube and redid everything, same result.
