Here are some photos from a Fin-Nor stripped down cleaned and re-assembled with top lubricants and of course Cal’s grease on the drag washers. The main bearings had a bit of rust and were fully refurbished and running smooth after the ultrasonic bath and re-lube. This reel is only used on  a boat offshore so the bearings were packed with a professional bearing packer which helps keep water out of the bearings. If it was for surfcasting then the spool bearings would be oiled to provide better casting ability.  I also apply a thin grease layer on most internal surfaces which prevents corrosion and water beads off instead of leaving salt deposits.
