Need abu worm gear and pawl, not sure of the reel model

Recommended Posts

Hi fellas,

First post here, what a great resource.

 

I'm in need of some help, figured you guru's were the place to come. I need to order a worm Gear and Pawl for a round Abu reel but all the identifying stickers are gone.

I suspect it's either a 4600 or 5600 series. According to the reel seat, it may even be a 6600, but I don't think it's that wide of a spool.

 

I have a rather simple request for the owners of 4600, 5600, and 6600 owners.

Do you mind relaying the inside width of the frame 

For instance my thumb bar measures 1-1/16" wide from frame to frame. 

 

I'm hoping this dimension will help me identify which Pawl and worm Geer item number I need to order.

From the thumb bar measurement, it sounds like a 4600.

Edit: I've replaced several pawls but never a worm gear. The pawl is made of softer material for that reason.

Thanks for the replies fellas! 

I think I figured it out. Looks like it's a "royal express". Same worm gear and pawl as all the 4000 series.

I've had to change pawls often on the Abu C series, but never had to change out the worm gear... are you sure you need to change both.  Order several of the pawls.

Pretty sure. I can see a spot on the worm gear (far right side) that looks a little beat up. It's about a 15-20 yo reel, figure I might as well replace both.

If the worm has visible wear definitely change it. The level wind on those take a beating since they don’t disengage and spin fast when casting. Keeping them clean and oiled is key. Do that and you shouldn’t eat up pawls.

I believe you figured it out, but just to confirm for you my royal express ii is 5000 series with thumbar almost 1.5”

Good news.

Thanks for measuring!

 

I was feeling lost for a few days, couldn't find any dimensions for Abu spools/frames...nothing. No response from Abu either. Stinks when the stickers are worn off and can't find any way to identify the real. Even the reel seat was coming back as a 6000 series. I'm thinking, no way this narrow spool is a 6000 series.

 

Anyhow. Thanks everyone. Mystery solved.
