    I have an abu ambassador six reel and i am having trouble with it. when i cast and move the handle to re engage the gears it doesnt always re engage. i took it apart and cleaned it with brake cleaner and re oiled it. no change. any help is appreciated.

    if you look at the bottom of the driveshaft. there will be a couple of nubs. they kick the cam off of the post and the springs pull the gears into place. gently pry the cam away from the brake plate and clean and grease under it. if your springs are ok then i'd bet the cam has trash under it, making it stick to the plate. If your still having problems post some pic's of it and i'll point out on the pics what i'm talking about.
