The nut that holds the roller end of the bail wire on 704, 710, & 712 has this type of locker.
Lochtite 222 does the same with the fact that it’s added after assembly.

 Me to.

Ive worked on a number of these reels & have no clue whats being talked about here. Never noticed a nylok insert of any kind in the adjustment cap.

After explaining your issue to Penn & sending them your reels it's possible but highly unlikely they would have missed this if it was missing.

There is an O ring that seals & creates tension for the adjustment cap. I have marked this O ring using the limits of my artistic abilities, with yellow arrows.
Another pic shows how the cap should look.  The rubber O ring must be seated in its groove to work right.

I believe  there may be an issue with the O ring..... Its out of proper dimensions , O ring is not seated right, cap is making good contact with it. Is it missing ?  ... Jeff

Mr. Brklyn.. .... I dont own this particular reel, and, Im pretty much a novice here, so please bare with me. Today, as I was watching the news, I was absentmindedly playing with a reel....C'mon I know you all do it Smiley.......anyways, I started messing with the spool adjustment cap on this reel{Daiwa SL20sh}, and flicking freespool. I definitely noticed a point where the cap would lose contact with the o-ring if I backed it off too far. And at that point it would be too loose to fish with.
Turn it back in and i can feel it catch, and engage. So, I was just wondering if maybe the "yellow cap" on your reel is not engaging the O-ring when you turn it in to get the freespool your looking for? And, if so, what would cause that? Maybe something internally shifting the spool to the side, so as not allowing the o-ring to catch properly.....Just got me to thinking, thats all. Either that, or the o-ring has shrunk and needs replacement...IDK Huh?........

Penn sent me a new cap and about four other very small parts, a click washer, friction washer, rubber washer, click spring and another clickwasher.

The rubber washer and friction washers are less than a  2 milimeters in size... very small.  This is going to take a magnifying glass and tweezers to work with
