    So let's begin by removing the handle nut plate plate screw #001 and handle nut #2417 by using a small phillips head screw driver and a 10mm socket.

    Remove the friction washer #799, star drag #2472, star drag spacer #1289 and the two drag spring washers # 0015
    [​IMG]

    Loosen the three right side plate bolts #1698 and pop off the right side plate assembly.
    [​IMG]

    We now have the reel in three sections.
    [​IMG]

    Let's start with the frame section. wipe off all the grease, corrosion, and salt build up (if any) Q-tips and a old tooth brush work really well for this. make sure to slide the clutch bar up and down to remove any gunk build up.

    Now we can slide out the worm shaft #2572 from the right side of the frame.

    Pop the left side plate bearing and the bearing retainer back into the left side plate and apply a light coat of yamaha grease on the right side of the frame make sure you put some into the three bolt holes.

    great post, great tutorial, exactly what I was looking for, I have the same model 200, not the new gray one 200a.

    thanks for posting

    PS: I've heard that a lot of people prefer this old model over the new one, personally I have never tryed the new model so, I dont know why they say that, any thought?

    Just wondering if ANYBODY could help me out with a quick question about the shimano cardiff. I have a 300a that is near new. I took it apart to put a little hot sauce on the bearings and the anti reverse pawl came off with all the drag and gear stuff. Now when I get everything back together the reel, reels rougher the tighter I tighten the drag?? Just to try to find the problem I assembled the reel leaving the pawl out. Reel works perfectly and seems to not need the pawl at awl :o) I think the pawl goes on before the anti reverse ratchet, correct? Things just dont seem to be lining up like that??? Man, I would really appreciate some help on this!

    Some of these things come with time and a few screw ups in the learning curve.... !!!

    First off the best way to get the pawl & Ratchet gear back on is to attach the pawl (note that it slides on, with a pinching extension) and put them into place at the same time. Now also note the bottom of Ratchet has a square hole, it must fit over square shoulder at bottom of main shaft, as the Pawl fits over its stud....

    Some of the Ratchet gears are one way also, make sure it locks when its turned and doesnt tend to slip over the Ratchet.. One way is angled and other direction is a square fit.....

    Place under washer, main gear and drag stack on..
    Now you come to the Roller bearing sleeve.. Note it has two ears on one side... These ears go into the top of Drag Stack..
    Make sure they are in place....

    Make sure the pawl is in its place (it comes off the ratchet and gets caught between the cap and base) and replace the side plate CAREFULLY.
    If you happen to back the cap off as you line it up, it will pull the SLEEVE back up and it wont fit back in the 2 openings.. you can not see this as the cap covers it...
    But the Drag will be extra tight and not function. It becomes obvious that something is not seated down.........

    From what you describe, I would guess you got the SLEEVE out of place and that adds several mm to the drag stack etc..

    The anti reverse Pawl and ratchet are heavy duty anti reverse that backs up the roller bearing.. A good solid big fish or hook set will allow the roller bearing & sleeve to slip.. You need the Pawl !!!
