hey Zook, these links may help. I'm assuming the Penn 49 mariner black face..

PENN REEL MAINTENANCE

Reel Maintenance

MaintenancePenn Parts incl. 49

here's a link for basic spinning maintenance (shimano as an example reel)
Basic Spinning Reel Service

and to throw in my .02 here, CRC Break Free works much better than WD in my opinion. Black and yellow 14 oz. can of Break Free in the Gun cleaning section at Wally world for about $5... great stuff and great on reels.

dang! and I've broke 5 reels so I can meet the sisters!!!

BTW : PB BLASTER ( yellow and white can) is the greatest penetrating lube I have ever used. I have used it for years on Cars, motorcycles, outboards and farm equipment.. If PB wont free up a bolt you'll have to torch it !! AutoZone, Agri Supply is where I buy it.
