How do I adjust the tightness of the index mechanism on the side cast reel?

  1. Loosen the lock nut on the top of the reel.
  2. Tighten the screw through the index plate until it is firm then loosen off about a 1/4 of a turn.
  3. You must hold the screw driver firmly in place at this position while you do up the lock nut firmly. If you do not hold the screw in position while adjusting the lock nut the adjustment will vary.
  4. If the reel is too hard or too loose to turn then repeat adjustment either with less or more release on the screw before doing the lock nut up. This must be done with the screw driver holding the screw in position.
