Question Using Lever Drag Loosens Pre-Set??

I have a Penn Torque 40 that does this. PITA. Also have had it happen with Okuma single speed 50's. Anybody else seen this? Is there a fix or just the way it is?

I had the same problem with a Penn Intl 30. New parts and spacers in the drag system fixed the issue.

If this happens, it kind of makes the reel worthless for all the purposes you bought a lever drag for.
