Hello Cat,
I am not a reel repair expert but I do know enough what you are asking is doable! The squider reels was a very popular at that time and the slow gear ratio (3 to 1) was meant for deep wreck/bottom fishing which has enough torch to cull a big brute from the deep. This reel is a workhorse and it still very popular today!

As to where, why and how much? Just about any reputable reel repair shop will be able to assist you (interchangeable ?higher? gear modifications) and you should be good to go. ?But I am not sure if you want to do that because (3 /1 ratio) it has it?s place and applications!

As far as how much money is going to cost? It difficult to guess because it depends on the current conditions (wear & tear, rust, stressed parts etc?). Hope this helps.
