Fixing My Silver Max

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I decided to take apart my broken silver max to see what was wrong. I laid out all the pieces and everything seems fine, but the reel won't spin the spool if it has any pressure on it whatsoever. The spool and the gears spin perfectly without pressure on the spool. The gears are all fine, nothing seems to be broken. What is the problem? Is it the drag washer that has gotten too smooth or what? If anyone could tell me what part is broken so I can replace it I would greatly appreciate it.post-40266-0-77715600-1361743359_thumb.jpost-40266-0-47268200-1361743379_thumb.j

Often with Revo's the anti-reverse star that is underneath the brass main gear isn't seated properly and doesn't line up with the piece that is moved when you push the button on the reel.  So when you push the button it will free spool but when you turn the handle it will not reset the button and engage the spool. The inside of that reel looks just like my revo's so I'm guessing the operation is nearly the same.  I have seen that anti-reverse star stick to the bottom of the main gear before.  Flip the main gear over and see if it has one stuck to it.  Hopefully this helps.  If that is not your problem, I would use acetone to clean the drag washers off and put them back in and see if that helps. good luck.

that was a different reel that works just fine. This is an old one I thought I stripped the gears on.

turning the handle resets the freespool depression lever just fine. Its just that when I hold the spool down, the handle turns but not the spool. If I was to fight a fish I would not be able to reel it in. Something is not engaging properly.

ur pinion yoke is upside down. it has a 45deg angle on it that fits the 45deg angle on the cam assembly. if it is upside down the pinion gear won't reach the spool shaft pin at the bearing=no turn.

OK first off you need the reels schematic!! never open a reel without one..... :eyebrows:

The pinion yoke is the white nylon part that the pinion gear sits in, and, it looks fine to me.

 

What I don't see in the picture you provided is the pair (2 drag spring washers), without them mounted ontop of the AR inner-sleve

You will not have the proper pressure placed on the crank stack and the drags will not engage properly.

They are the washers that are shape like so  () make sure you place them as you see it here.

 

Good Luck & Tight Lines!  :fishing1:

did you open that reel w/o schematics?! you brave young buck!

 

as stated its the white nylon piece.  in ur picture there are 2 small springs sitting on it.  try turning it upside down.  the pinion gear is the gold gear sitting in the middle of it. it turns ur spool

alright thanks I'll flip it over and see if it fixes it. Schematics? Pssshhh. I have a photographic memory. I can picture every piece and where it goes just from seeing how it was when I took it apart. (And I put all the pieces in order.)
