Newell Penn 500/501 5:1 Stainless Gears! Yoke Carbontex Kit Teflon Bearing NEW!! For Sale
|Current Bid: $ 129.00|
Up for sale is one very rare set of brand new Newell 5:1 stainless steel GK-1AF gear set for the Penn Jigmaster 500/501 or Penn 112H Senator 3/0. These gears will also work with a Penn Jigmaster 505HS and Penn 506 Narrow. This gear kit includes a stainless belleville washer, brass sleeve and optional stainless tension washer.This kit will also include a very hard to find Newell Long Cast "Bearing" Kit (LC-1) that is brand new in the packaging. When used on Penn reels that have bushings (Penn 500, 501, 112H, etc), this kit along with a light drop of Speed-X or similar oil will allow you to get maximal freespool and casting distance from a non-bearing equipped reel. Also included with this kit is a stainless steel yoke (part # 12-500) provided by Smooth Drag, which is essential to use with stainless steel gears because the stock brass sleeve will simply get eaten away by a stainless pinion gear. This will also help to keep electrolysis out of the reel. Please use a very light coating of grease on both the yoke and gears prior to installation.And finally, this kit will include a brand new Carbontex carbon fiber drag kit by Smooth Drag, which will increase your available drag pressure as well as providing a nearly maintenance-free drag system. I prefer to use Cal's drag grease on my Carbontex drags, but that is up to the preferences of the end use. If smoothness is most important, then grease should be used. If high amount of drag is a necessity, then dry would be the preferred way to run this kit. Shipping will be free for USPS First Class with delivery confirmation!
