I recently did maintenence on my old 30sw. Lubed bearings and gears, installed new drag, added shaft sleeve like AlanTani, just the right length. Didnt remove handle assembly or gears. Reassembled. Freespools great, and fine in low gear. But when I pop handle back up to high gear, nothing. Wont engage spool. Anyone know whats going g on?

    Take it apart and see if the shaft moves and engages the low/high gears when you press the button

    maybe it’s stuck with old grease/gunk? Or weak spring
