This should be pretty much identical: 211. When cleaning the handle, make it your very last piece to clean. The X in the size when replaced with a 5 represents a push button free spool release model and a 6 is a thumbar free spool release model. One may be surprised at just how good Grandpa's old reel will look when it has been properly cleaned. It was sold in the European market only in 1952 until sometime in 1953.

Part 9200 seen in the lower middle portion of the schematic is described as a drag conversion kit and can be purchased separately. Production for this model began in June 1966 and was introduced to the public in 1967. Pictured in progression with earliest first, I have found four side plate versions known to exist for the 2000 model. Serial numbers are five digit and range from 6xxxx to 7xxxx. I wouldn't have discovered this reel if it hadn't been for Simon Shimomura's dedication to the Ambassadeur and his books which are so inspiring.

Original quick take-down thumb nuts used two basic knurling designs. My research indicates reels with this spool are almost always confined to those with serial numbers beginning with 1xxxx 5 digit. If the paddle is excessively dry you made need to apply more but once it holds its original black color you shouldn't ever have to do this again. I doe mean International but as in the 7000ic3 does not mean cheap or lesser quality. Anodized finish inside Simon's plates are 100%. This confirms both box and reel were assembled together at the factory in 1965. He wrote back to me and said I may have made a great new discovery! Well, you guys were all right.

This example was made in 1968. To date, it's the only one I've confirmed as original with 2xxxx as the starting digit. I use to wonder if they actually counted individual ball bearings. The original gear ratio was 3. Hi guys, sorry, I had stopped monitoring for answers. Or is it the other way around.

I need the public to come forward with other examples so I can confirm the serial number and the various parts assembled, as original. Finally just tore it open and went for it. And hopefully I'll never be forced to sell it as I was my first one to help pay rent when I first got married! Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Of most interest to me is the period from the 50's to the 80's. Although we can not tell by the picture if this model is a 4-screw or 3-screw, the next set of pictures leaves no doubt to the existence of such a reel. As a young boy, my father frequently took me fishing. On September 7, 2013, a gentleman contacted me with pictures of his 5000 De Luxe with serial number 223.

Don't think they are rare but are certainly sought after by collectors especially if you have the box,instructions,leather case and tools. The owner of this reel reports there are no marks on the reel foot to indicate it was ever mounted to a rod yet the spool is filled with line. Unlike it's 5000D cousin, the 5500D never had a clicker installed. These are the 5000 De Luxe units known to have the friction washer and were made between 1969~1973. One exception is the 4500 and 4500C.

Left side plate part 2293 fit models 2000 2nd series , 2050, 2500, 2600 and 2650. Their construction is quite different than their counterparts and were never changed to a 3-screw model. Simon Shimomura side plates Simon Shimomura is author of three books on collectible Ambassadeur reels and is considered an expert and historian of Ambassadeur. Someone had it apart before,but it is a simple design and heavy making it awkward to handle. Simon Shimomura's books are an excellent guide to help answer these questions and one would be wise to purchase his books.
