Just stripped down my 7ht mag as the spool release button was not re-engaging properly. Cleared out a bit of the grease that was causing the problem, and thats now sorted. However,in the driveside casing there was what can be described as a broken washer of some sort. Sitting under the main drive gear, it had fallen into several bits. Very thin, dark brown and very fragile. It seemed to be made from some sort of plastic or carbon.

I have put the reel back together, and although it all functions fine, i can now hear a faint clicking as i reel in, a bit like the sound you hear on some bike wheels when free wheeling. Sounds like the anti reverse paw clicking along the gearing.

Anyone ever come across this before? I imagine that the broken washer may be some sort of spacer between the gears and the casing, and now thw anti reverse is sitting at a slight angle once its missing.

Any info would be much appreciated.

Sounds like the drive shaft washer (you'll be needing that :laugh:).

Daiwa normally send out such bits FOC.:)

Cheers. I have popped them an email to see if they can supply a new one.

Never had the slightest problem with a Daiwa reel before, so I am not sure if this is a common problem with this model.

The reel is designed so that it requires a minimum of one full turn of the handle before the drive will re-engage. Confused me to start with (not that it takes much ...).

Thats so you dont re-engage the reel mid cast if you bump the handle.

Abus can do that occasionally.

And since daiwas are rarely used for constant cast/retrieve baitcasting/spinning, but for beach/distance work it's not actually a bad idea.

mine does sometimes on one turn but can take up to 3 turns-might need some grease removed

Thanks Hot Wad, if i do not get a reply in the next day or two I will give them a ring.

Seems like others are having the same problem with the reel not re-engaging after one full turn. Mine was taking 3-4 turns to click back into gear, so a clean up was required. The broken drive shaft washer was a bit of a suprise, as its a brand new reel, and this was the first time its been stripped down. Normally Daiwa reels have given me years of service without the slightest problem, so two fairly minor problems with a new model is a bit unusual for them.
