Two reels from my Williams Jive Time out of five buzz and chatter and I have not been able to fix it. I replaced and swapped the coil stop to no avail. I swapper the coil/sleeve itself from the good reel; same. The EOS switch seems to be OK but my testing is a direct power cable to the coil.
All that's left is the drive pawl and armature; my search online didn't find one. Does the armature go bad? How tight does it fix into the coil sleeve? When the power of a good reel is applied, the armature stays in with no sound. But the ones in question chatter and buzz with the power applied (Pinside doesn't seem to accept the .MOV file that I made.)
Any idea appreciated. Thanks, Eddie
