Curado Dsv 300 - Ar Issue.

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a Curado DSV 300/301? If so, did you ever experience about a 1/8" to 1/4" reverse turn on the reel? I have been discussing with Mike from DVT on how to remedy it and a thorough cleaning didn't solve the problem. I'd like to be able to fix it myself as I'm finding that I enjoy working on my reels and I have ALL winter long to do it. However, this might be out of my reach and I'll be sending off to DVT anyway. I use the reel for a musky set up so it doesn't get nearly as much use as my bass set ups. The reel works great other than that slight problem, and it is more of a nuisance to me than anything. Any insight would be appreciated.

Too much oil on the AR bearing usually results to the extra reverse turn, flush the bearing and add two drops of thick reel oil like the one supplied by the manufacturer) to four drops of light reel oil like corrosion X) . Also check if nut the hold down the handle on the main shaft is loose, it needs to be real tight to avoid that extra slip page.
