When looking at the pawls with the adjustment screw on top, the point of the left pawl should point towards the gear, or the center. The point of the pawl on the right should head towards the screw.

1540 set up with BOTH pawls in engaged position for LHW (strong)



If you want only one pawl of the two to be active (less strong) but still LHW, simply turn either of the two pawls so that sharper engaging point of the pawl (ie that nearest the pawl slot which fits onto the pawl post) is now NOT pointing towards the central reel spindle.

Should the tension be the same for both reeling in and line pulling out?

Picked up a 1535. Set the pawls like the above photo. Wanted to disengage one so I spun the left one. That resulted in the spool freely spinning with no clicking. So the right pawl isn't engaged???

I've tried several combos but don't know if the current setting is correct. Can anyone else show a picture of a 1535/1540 set for LHW?

Thanks.

perhaps you should post a photo of your reel set-up, so it's more clear what you've done....

...and that is different from what I showed & explained above how???
I believe only the left hand pawl is engaged in your photo instead of both. That's what threw me. I set things up the way you showed and then spun the left pawl. No click from the right.

Got it all figured out now. Thanks.
