Need some expert help! After cleaning and lubing my Mitchell 330 reel, the bail linkage will no longer fully close after line pick-up. The outside bail linkage only goes back to about horizontal rather than all the way back to the stud. (Also, he bottom of the baffle plate doesn't seem to move the trip lever all the way over to push the outside bail linkage fully into place.) It appears to my inexperienced eye that it may be a fine adjustment problem. Any ideas from the more experienced reel repair persons on this board would be much appreciated! Many Thanks!
