    look on the bottom of the foot, were it goes on the rod, match the #s with the #s on this site http://www.mikesreelrepair.com/schematics/thumbnails.php?album=27&page=3 the first few #s on the foot should match the last #s on one of theise scematics ie ambassadeur 6000 05 01 the 05 01 will be what you find on the bottom of the reel. this may or may not help

    the reel I gotten has a fixed shaft on the spool and has the bearing in the end caps were as my 6500 c3 & c4 has the bearing in the spool and not a fixed shaft and my 6000 is the same as my 6500 c3 & c4
