BDR reels spinning slowly

Post by geordy55 »

My BDR top reel is spinning slowly and it seems to be because the ‘win pin’ starts to touch the lower win cog as soon as the sequence starts.
Has anyone experienced this and know a fix for it ?

Follow the vertical "win pin" down to the bottom and you'll see a step in it.
The horizontal bar that interacts with that step slides forward when the handle reaches tip over, and holds the "win pin" down and clear of the spinning reels above.
It's like the catch on a three reeler attached to the timing bar that waits until the fingers have been released, and then lets go of the slide bundle.

BP :cool:

All sorted now. It was as simple as a weak spring not doing its job on the clock.
