    You guys probably already know this, but I thought it might help somebody out. My levelwind stuck all the way to one side on a 6600. Took it all apart and couldn't find anything wrong. Level wind pawl was in good shape, cleaned everything, still no good. Got to looking at the shaft the levelwind rides on and there was a small ding on the end of one of the islands on the shaft that directs the level wind pawl. I could just barely see it, but I took a piece of sandpaper and smoothed it off and it works like a champ.

    another pointer if the line builds up on one side of the spool its usualy the level wind not moving across as supposed to , simple fix , clean and oil the worm gear the level wind rides in .
