Hi All.

I have a Spinfisher vi 6500... Recently started making a click soound at bottom when the rotor turns.

When putting on the spool, the pool clicks 'backwards' when the rotor is at the bottom rotating.

Any advice what could be the issue?

Thanks

The undersideand or lowest edge of your spool is bottoming out against the top surface(s) of the rotor.
The shims you use to adjust line lay have been cpompressed when under high drag settings. Add a shim or three and rry again

Hi Tackle-holic.

Thanks for the reply.

Removed all 3 Shims now and the spool, when turning without spool still 'sticking' at bottom when rotor turns.

You should not have removed the shims, put them back and add more shims and see if the click dissappear.

hang on a mnute...

At first the spool was ticking and indeed turning at the bottom of the stroke; indicated to me that the shims are probabably compressed - add ADDITIONAL shims.

But from your more recent message you removed all shims AND removed the spool and the shaft is sticking at the bottom of its stroke?

That's correct.


The rotor somehow gets sticky when it rotates at the bottom (without spool), but between middle and upper rotation the rotor spin smooth.

That sounds like the main shaft might be bent.
Remove side plate.

Unscrew the 2 screws that hold the main shaft to the oscillation block and pull the man shaft out (no need to remove rotor)

Roll the shaft on a flat surface (with the brass spool bushing/seat hanging over the edge)
If it slightly bent you will feel it

Brandon, could it also not be the nut holding the rotor that is too loose, causing the rotor to 'wobble'.

Could be. But Ive seen it often enough that when a reel gets stiff at only one point of the stroke it's the shaft sticking inside the pinion 'cause it is bent ever-so-slightly. Like a frog-hair amount

Hi All.

Just an update, replaced the crosswind gear, seems to have resolved the issue :).

Thanks
