hey guys i have just got a abu garcia 6600 cl rocket off a friend.When i reel it it lets out a noise.i was hoping one of you out there can diagnose this for me so i can order the part and fix it.Take a listen to the video and let me know if u recognize the problem.
Sounds like it just needs grease......probably on the side with the handle. Id throw some oil on the levelwind gear and line pawl. Take the side plate off of the side with the handle. With a q tip or paper towel clean the old grease out and replace it with new stuff.
I like quantums hot sauce line up. ..both the oil and grease.
My guess is that it works fine...casts good, is still smooth, and has no other problems right?
Sounds like the gears need grease for sure. Usually when they get like that it's time to clean and relube the whole reel. Get some grease on the gears and drive shaft. A small drop of oil on the bearings and grease or oil on the worm and pawl.
