I took the level wind off by taking the reel apart
then removing the "bridge" for it and the guide it just pulls out the side i then took a piece of 5/16" stainless steel round stock and copied the dimensions of the "bridge" i don't have it in front of me but i believe it had two flats on one side and i tapped
the other side for a screw. then just put it back together. as far as the line coming off striaght, htat comes from practice with your "educated" thumb. you lay the line on the reel during the retrieve. i have done this also to, two 7000 i have, plus i replaced the bushings in these reels with bearings. any guestions just ask.
