UPDATED 114HL Schematic

UPDATES to Schematics today

Added information to drawing and parts list regarding the two different frames and the differences in the stands and stand screws.

Updated Schematics Today

UPDATES to Schematics today
60, 60-LH, 65, 66-67-68 (Measure!), 125, 505HS, 506HS, 970, 980, 990

To replace the click tongue on models where it is peened into place, use a dremel drill with a fine tip to remove the old click tongue and click button. Then peen the new 36-209 into place.

On older 66, 67 and 68 reels a 36-60CH may be required. It measures .248 (roughly 1/4 inch) from just under the cap to the edge of the dropdown.
The 36-209 measures .283 (roughly 1/16 inch longer) Penn may have changed the 27-66 plate at some point, although there are no notes to that effect.

Any reel that uses the 36-209 can use:
36N-209 w/ 69B-600 removable c clip
This newer style is held by the clip instead of being peened in place.

Notes have be added in the appropriate parts online, as well.

Updated Defiance Schematics DFN20LW,DFN25LW, DFN30, DFN40LW

UPDATES to Schematics today

8A-DFN20LW Washer, Tension, Rectangular w/bent ends

We assigned this part number to the part found in the early run models of these reels.

As of June 2015, Penn has informed us that it is not used on later runs of the reels and is not required. They are not assigning it part number or making it available to order as a result.

Schematic Update for 130, 130H international reels

Added a part that Penn had not put on the schematic drawing, as they never gave it an official part number. The screws that hold the cam housing assembly into the handle side plate can be replaced by 50-704.
Revised schematics are now online in our site.

Website updates

New top navigation as of 1/30/15, hope you all find it useful! Also about 2/3 of the way done adding our reel repair guides to our Help center at This link will be in the new navigation menu. Sorry that it took us so long to get them transfered over. We know a lot of you were missing using the pages for troubleshooting reel repairs.
