    Sounds like anti reverse bearing's on its way out, you could try taking it out, flushing it with petrol/ lighter fuel/ solvent several times then when as clean & dry lube with a few dabs of very thin oil...that usuall works for about a trip, then it starts again & you need to go buy a new arb...not cheap, around £15 a throw last time I bought one from Penn!! :scared:

    cps had one that was fine at home, but as soon as it got out in the cold & things started to shring ever so slightly it started to backwind... :educated:

    I've looked high & low for a source of the same bearings, they're a Koyo model, I used to have the Koyo part number somewhere, but even approaches to Koyo stockists drew a blank... :angry:

    defo the anti reverse, problem is, you should use liquid grease not the thick blue stuff, it seazes them, these are the major problem with penn reals, penn do supply the correct greases and oils but you only find out after you have wrecked your anti reverse, i was oiling them wichis no good cos after time they lock up full of shoit
    the blue stuff is for the engage disengage plate , springs and ratchet parts, i made the mistake of using pen grease for the anti reverse and foooooked up a couple of them, they do liquid grease that up to now are mint, dont let any of this touch your bearings, one smudge of it turns your mag into a penn squidder.

    The 525 should be easily remedied by cleaning the bearing in the handle that mart mentions. As for the 535. If your scrapping it send it my way. I love em.
