    A friend of mine gave me this reel,and it needs to be cleaned up. It has been sitting around for quite awhile and has collected a lot of dirt and gunk. Do any of you know how to take this reel apart so I can clean it good? I can't seem to be able to figure out how the side pieces come off. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Glenn

    Don't tell me no one on this site knows anything about this reel. I thought there would be someone that would know something about it,with all of the knowledge that there is on here. Maybe I'll just throw it in the trash if I can't come up with any information on it. I kinda hate to do that as it is a pretty nice reel other than being a little dirty.

    I don't know how to help ya, but I took my penn jigmaster and monofil 25 to a shop. only aobut $ 12.00 to do it. he said he'd be happy to take my money but he said I could do it myself and showed me how. I don't know about the monofil either. both were plenty corroded, but didn't need any parts. Maybe a tackle shop can help ya, if not send it to penn, kinda spendy tho.
