this little tip will restore your old clicker to loud and new order. after years of wear and use and abuse they can get weak. simply remove the side plate opposite of the crank handle. three screws. there is a white plastic gear on the spool axle. this is seen in the second pic. the fins toward the inside is what the spring steel clicker rides on to click. the third pic you can see the steel flat peice copper color that rides this gear. bend it gently toward the center of reel just slightly to snug it back into position. dont move it much. 1/4" is more than enough to get it tight.
