Chairman Model 820 spinning reel pics
« on: July 26, 2017, 03:32:10 PM »
Here are pictures of a Chairman Model 820 spinning reel. It is interesting in that this reelís drag system doesnít match the schematics that came with the reel. The schematic diagram shows in the tube of the line spool assembly a drag spring (part #55) at the bottom followed by alternating three steel washers, three felt washers and last at the top a retaining ring. This reel only had one felt washer and no retaining ring. When I look inside the spool, there is no groove to hold a retaining ring and with the three steel and one felt washer inserted the reel came with, they are flush with the top of the spool. There is no room for two more felt washers let alone a retaining ring inside the spool. The spool does say 820 on it so not sure why the discrepancy. And the drag on this reel works fine the way it came.
