Hi,

For a Penn GTO 220, pls check this page an exploded view of the GTO220 that details parts and their placement. It is a PDF file and would need Abobe Acrobat Reader to view and print.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Call customer service.

Your drag is either worn or it is assembled improperly.

When I need parts or service, I call penn directly. They are the best reels out there as far as I'm concerned. And most of them are made in USA and backed by Penn.

It is the only reel that I care to fish with

If the knob is not stripped, replace the drag washers under the drag knob.
Replace key #'s 6 and 56T with 3x 6-155 carbon drag washers, available here: http://www.mikesreelrepair.com/product_info.php?products_id=7806
this will bring your drag back to better than new condition!

You need to take apart the reel and pinch in the leaves on the antireverse dog.

The Drag on my 750ss does not work what could be the problem?


This happens after you screw the drag too tight so that the plastic washer under the spool is pressed out. The fix is simple: cut excess of that washer and tighten properly.

Tighten the drag star to expose the black ratch ring. Press the ratchet ring down towards the star drag as you turn the handle backwards to unscrew it from the crank shaft.

Penn Spin Reel will not lock after casting


On the front of the spool there is a device to turn to set the drag. Torn it tighter and tighten it until slightly below the breaking point of your fishing line. It isn't a critical adjustment, it just keeps your line from breaking while trying to land a fish.
