Contact okuma they should be able to sort you out with one i spect you will just have to tell them the model.As for the levelwind personally i would remove it id did not find it hard atall to lay the line without it but if your are not confident doing this then leave it by all means

I've got an Okuma Classic, not a bad reel till the level wind gearing gave out the other day, I disconected the level wind, taking out the gears that operate it, but leaving in the worm and bars on the cage, take away the guide. The reason for leaving the crossbars and worm drive is if you take them out you leave four holes that will let the elements inside your reel. By the way it casts much better now. :)

As for the "dust cap", just been and checked mine, the only thing I can find that is anything like a dust cap is situated near the handle under the star drag. If this is what you are talking about it is the adjuster for the spool itself and you will have trouble setting your reel up until you replace it.
