Turning that AR ratchet around sounds like a good experiment. There could be wear on the bottom surface of said ratchet, possibly on one side of the teeth.
That ratchet tooth design is one I've seen in a Torium and a Diawa Lexa. It sucks, IMO. I can see where it might slip. Almost like they wanted to save on weight, thickness and $ in the design. Then again, what do I know, maybe it's supposed to slip under too heavy a load, to prevent damage to other reel parts.
It'ed be nice if there was a metal bushing for that nylon "idle" gear.
I've already turned it around, I faced it a bit with 600 waterpaper.
Sure there are design or money saving errors with this reel, the wear on the idler gear axel or post is of concern and so is the soft spool.  (If you drop it it gets a dent)

The maintenance cost on this reel is becoming too high

Time will tell when I have to shelve it.
