    I've been able to get parts from several different outfits over the years. The one in Florida is Dave's Parts and Service (727) 942-9731. For on-line schematics for Abu (and most makers) you can get them from the following site....
    http://www.southwesternparts.com/ Southwestern is located in Texas. When you go to their web page just click on the logo for the reel maker you need a schematic from....

    By the way the schematics for Abu are so poor that I never look forward to using them.... and that hasn't changed much for a lot of years.

    They have a few... I've been able to get drags and related parts for Ambassadeur 7000 for instance.... I long ago got rid of all my Ambassadeurs except the one I was given as a birthday present back in 1963.....
