I have two sick reels. One is ABU-MATIC 170. It feels like the bushing in the shaft that the crank hooks to is worn. The other is a Ambassador 5000. It has a drag problem. will not tighten all the way. Washer broken. They both are about 40(?) years old and have sentimental value. Where can I get parts, info or someone to fix them. I live in central Texas.
