Each reel is a little bit different but the basics are the same. Here are the elementary steps the Kilpatricks recommend to keep your reel working properly.

When each reel is dry lightly lubricate easily accessible moving parts. This is especially important if the reel was used in saltwater or in dirty or muddy conditions. Do not use the reel until it is fully clean as dirt and sand can cause damage.

Oil bearings. "Clean bearings with lighter fluid. That'll remove all the dirt and grunge from them. After they're cleaned make sure they spin. That's very important because it'll tell you they're clean. Oil them with TG's Rocket Fuel — medium viscosity — one drop per bearing. Again use a toothpick."

Start each trip with a thorough cleaning. Gently rinse each reel to remove salt particles. Don′t loosen the drags yet and don′t use a lot of water pressure either to prevent forcing salt and dirt into internal components. If possible wash reels with warm soapy fresh water to remove salt body oils blood and dirt. Remove the skirted spool (and drag knob if necessary) and clean the underside of the spool and the spindle area. Next rinse the entire reel again with a gentle spray and let them air dry or pat with a towel or chamois. Next loosen the drag knob to remove pressure so the washers don′t become compressed and warped.

Never put metal against metal. "Never put metal to metal when working on your reel. All reel parts are designed metal to fiber. Remember that."
