Bail return on my penn 360 slammer is weak! Took whole bail assembly apart oiled all piviot points and spring. Bail arm alone seems to have enough force to flip the bail over however when I screw it back to the bail assembly it seems to bind up and slow the bail return. I also replaced the bail spring which did't help! Any Ideas would be helpful

Bails can be weird

Bails can be weird sometimes, The bail itself may be exerting excess force making it hard to flip. Try bending the bail open if you tried new spings already. Remove bail, Bend it open so you have to give it a slight push back to set to place. If you have another matching bail see if the line up in the relaxed position.

Forgot to mention!!

Loosen your screws a little see how it flips, if it flips well when screws are loose most likely you bail has to be bent back to shape, they exert excess force when out of shape. You may have to play around a little till you get it, and have to do it with at least one side removed
