Revo S Spool Tensioner help/troubleshooting

Recommended Posts

All - I have an older gen Revo S that's having trouble with the spool tension dial. It screws on just fine, but has no "clicks" and goes from freely screwing on to dead tight in about a quarter of a turn. When it's tightened all the way down it doesn't slow the spool or bait from falling.

I took the dial off and there's a small black hard plastic washer with a very thin metal disc underneath that has a few notches. I'm not sure how these are supposed to layer or which way they're supposed to face but I tried all combinations with no dice.


Any tips? Thanks ahead of time!

Check a schematic to be sure all the parts are there. Inside the cap should be a flat rubber spacer, a black plastic click washer, a small carbon spacer in the middle, and a metal spring washer. There's another click washer with short legs that sits in the frame. If it's all there and doesn't click flip the metal spring washer over. Verify via schematic as I'm out and going by memory.
