    I know what you mean, I use an old 113 special senator with-out levelwind. Try looking at pennparts.com they usually have vintage parts but I don't think you can convert yours. They have really good deals on new Penn levelwind reels.

    Be best to find a reel with levelwind. Not much in convertions.
