Anti-Reverse (A/R) System, Housing and Gear Changes:
This was revised in the newer models manufactured since February 2001.
Penn Said: "You can tell if a reel already has the new system installed by looking at the lable on the bearing cover (part #233) any reel with a RED dot in the center of the label has the old system. Newer Reels With A GOLD/SILVER DOT has the NEW system."

This was referring to the dot on the closed bearing cover #233 (opposite handle). HOWEVER! If you lost your bearing cover and replaced it, you could have the wrong color dot anyway. So it may be best to ignore this method of identification.

Newer housings will be marked with either 1N-4500 or 1P-4500 on the inside. ALSO - look at the dog - the older dog has pinchable wings, the newer dog does not, it has a cut in it for the spring to sit in. See PHOTOS below comparing gears and dogs as well.

12/21/2023 Got it! Its perfect. Thank you so much. It was just on a whim that I even searched for this part. Hard to believe that I could get a reel part for a reel that is 30 plus years old. Thanks again,
