This appears to affect most of the SSV models, our notes may not be complete.
Part availability varies.
PLEASE INSPECT YOUR SSV REEL'S CROSSWIND GEAR FOR THESE MEASUREMENTS.
The diameter of the hole in the 231- crosswind gear is 5/16" in the one version.
In the other version #231 gears, the crosswind gear I.D. is .23" just under 1/4", and the housings need to match it.
The housings also have another difference. The pins on the housing cover and the holes in the housing where it sits changed on the different versions and these are two different sizes. The lower pin is larger.
On the other version, the pins are the same size.

To Clarify: We DO NOT know which version is the newer one, so MEASURE PLEASE!
Current inventory numbers match the numbers on the schematics, and the parts work with each other, but not with the other version, due to the changes in diameters. Inspect your reel carefully, so that you order parts that fit with each other. If your SSV reel has the 3/8" version, replacing housing or crosswind means changing all 4 parts.
The schematic revisions 10/1/14 that Penn has released do not yet reflect this problem and all of the part numbers involved remain unchanged, even though there are differences in the physical parts.
If your reel is one of the ones that are NOT confirmed to be affected, you can call us to check the measurements of our stock crosswind and housing parts to see if what we have will work in your SSV reel, prior to ordering.
