Drag factory installed for left-hand wind. To change your real to right-hand wind, remove spool, pull the keyed bush and clicker plate assembly off the spindle. Flip the clutch bearing (silver) and reassemble.

Hold the bell or (metal thing on the top) so that it doesn't turn and reel in. It should start unscrewing. Theres a cap on the other side, unscrew it and put it on the left hand side. Then screw the handle in on the right side by just reeling in until the bell starts spinning.
