Anybody know where I can find bail springs for an old Abu Garcia Cardinal C3 spinning reel? It's the black one they came out with right after the green ones.

Thanks, I'll give that a shot before I get out again this weekend, hopefully.

I should be alright without the break blocks, wont I? I'll just have a more free floating spool?

Ok, so heres the deal that started out of the blue with my 7 or 8 year old C3... Loud zinging noise on the cast, almost like the bait clicker is on, but it is not. Took the reel apart to check for loose ends and what not, found nothing. Put it back together and it cranked hard to the point of being unfishable. Took it back apart. Removed the plastic break "hats" on the side of the spool as they appeard to be pinched. Reel turns like new, but I still get the clicking noise on the cast. It functions fine, but is annoying to listen to. Any ideas on what needs to be replaced? I'm guessing its some cheap 3-cent piece of plastic or spring on the left side of the reel by the bait clicker.
