SERVICING — ABU Ambassadeur 7000

Post by LLCC »

This reel is what I call a piece of machinery that simply works! It is simple by today’s standards, but it had continued to work even today, pulling in Sailfish from Rompin and Snappers from Mapur and Linggi. Here’s the parts, stripped down, drying off after a bath in Simple Green followed by another in warm soapy water.

No. Unfortunately, I haven't got a Curado to work on yet. Next Shimano in queue is a Stella.

Sorry.
