Will a squirt of WD40 now and again do any harm?
Standard quick maintenance on a baitcaster should include cleaning the levelwind mechanism from any accumulated residue and debris. In a perfect environment, the light grease that the factory uses would be the perfect lubricant for the worm gear: However, this grease will hold dirt which will accelerate wear on the gear and pawl. To avoid this remove the grease with a solvent such as lighter fluid, or rubbing alcohol, and then use a small amount of good reel oil on the worm and pawl. Wipe away any excess, as you don't want anything to accumulate in the tolerance between your spool edges and the frame. To that end, remove the spool and wipe those areas with a damp cloth.
Maintain cleanliness and lubrication in the thumb bar mechanism similarly, and add a drop of oil to spool bearings and reel handles occasionally as needed.
The last thing you ever want to do is to squirt an aerosol Water-Displacement product into the drain holes in the bottom-front gear case, as this will also displace the grease on the gears, and will make a mess of the inside of your reel!
