Requesting help reassembling drag mech. on an H2O Motive/Mettle

Recommended Posts

I had my reel apart for cleaning, had everything arranged how it came off, and had them knocked off the table(parts everywhere). I have all of the parts accounted for but when I look at the schematic for the reel and how it goes back together I have some questions that I'm hoping someone can answer.

1. I have 2 more washers than the schematic shows. I'm wondering if this schematic is a generic one for the mettle/motive and the motive is slightly different. I believe ( possibly incorrectly) that the motive has a stronger drag (lbs) than the mettle? If so, maybe the extra washers are part of that?  

2. I'm having trouble figuring out how the spring washers orientate. They are slightly convex/concave. In the schematic, it looks like they orientate like this (). But I would appreciate it if someone can confirm that and that they don't go like any of these ways )(, ((, )).

I can try to get pics if it would help. I specifically have the 10 bearing motive, but the mettle may be roughly the same.

 

Thanks for any help. I put the reel back together and it seems to work, I just want to get it back together correctly and not damage anything that I could have prevented by making sure it was correct..

H2O customer support? I'm not seeing anything on the package or parts papers that came with my reel. I'm assuming these reels are made for H2O by another reel company.

If you want to email me pics and the schematic I'll interpret for you. Yes the drag spring washers go ()

Go to academy's website and look at the reel. Look in the Q & A section. It's normally in there for some of the reels
