Literally this book is the final chapter of the classic Ambassadeur reels written by Simon Shimomura, the Mr. Ambassadeur.

Fred s Classic ABU Reel Information by. Fred Ribb. All information on this page is my interpretation and opinion about the history of the Ambassadeur reel as I.

Here ya go, hope this helps. It appears to be a 72 model if it has a checkered foot and the spool bearings are 3 X 10 X 4 s.

ABU Serial Numbers

Among the many questions people have about ABU reels, the most frequently asked ones would be the meaning of those numbers stamped on the reel foot. This number can usually tell the approximate age of the reel. In most cases, these number are not serialized or unique to each reel except for some limited edition models.  These numbers usually indicate the production code which can mean a different design, manufacturing process or material change. Associated with these numbers will be the year in which this code was implemented. For example, 741120 would be different from 750030. There is no consistency in the way ABU number the reel foot but with a little experience combing servral other factors like design etc.. one can usually tell the approximate age. A useful rule which I learn from a tackle dealer in UK:

4 figure numbers   Found in 5000 De Luxes and 5000C Deluxes spanning early 1960s to 1970s   Smooth foot

5 figure numbers   Sometimes found in mid 50s record ambassadeurs and very early Ambassadeur 5000. Also found in reels made in the late 60s / early 70s especially the 5000C.   Smooth foot

6 figure numbers   Late 1950s to 1960s, numbers running from 1xxxxxx to 9xxxxxx. Found in early Ambassadeur 5000 and 6000 ribbed sideplates    Smooth foot

6 figure numbers   Late 60s / early 70s. Middle two digits indicating year. ie xx08xx - 1968   Smooth foot

1970s    6 figure numbers, first 2 or middle 2 numbers as read ie 71xxxx or xx71xx - 1971   Checkered foot

1980s    Same as 70s but usually first 2 digits ie 82xxxx - 1982    Checkered foot

Late 80s / early 90s   3 pair of numbers separated by -    Checkered foot

Late 90s   6 figures, usually the last digit. i.e. 060006 or 040006 refers to a reel made in 1996   Checkered foot

Bearing Sizes for ABU s

Hi. It looks like an old 5000B model. 3.8-1 tranny, a couple of hard phenolic drag washers, with a 1st generation snooze alarm.  This drawing should work.  WHATEVER you do, do NOT pull the yoke spring out of that square keeper by the push button.   5119-4056 If you do, you will rue the day, and fight with it for a very long time.  

I d also click on the tutorial by KF23, over in the Abu section..the last sticky one on page one. it s a 6000B, a lot like yours. Ask him how he liked that spring thing.

Found a website with over 7000 schematics. I thought this might help. I see reels on there from the mid 1930 s.

If you have a aluminum spool it s an L. If you have a chrome plated bronze spool it is a M. Both schematics are the same except for the spool material.

I m looking for these old Pflueger schematics - I m wondering if they ever existed.. I ve looked at all the links listed in this section some more than once. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.


Last Edit: September 08, 2015, :00 PM by sdlehr

Well, so far 115 people have viewed this, and no response, so I ll assume there are none anywhere and that they probably never existed in the first place. Thanks for looking.

For anyone interested, I ve located parts lists at Glenn s Reel Repair in Des Moines, IA - they don t have schematics, but a parts list might help if they also have the parts.

I m sure if someone here had some info they would step up to help you Sid.

I once had a heck of a time locating a schematic for a much newer reel. Finally just tore it open and went for it.

Hope you find what you are looking for.
