    Hey I was wanting to put a level wind on my new Abu Garcia 6500 C3. When I took the old handle off. It had that silver little ring on it. I know from past times if you take that little silver piece off the reel will never be the same. So how would you guys do this

    Yeh the reel did not come with a level wind. It come with the standard handle. But I bought a level wind handle and I want to put it on the reel

    Gator it appears he just wants to change the handle not the levelwind. Let me know if I'm wrong.

    OK the title was some what missdleading then. The only thing you should have to do is take the nut cap off un-screw the locking nut and pull the old handle off then slide the new one on. The little peace your talking about should just slide off.
