Why would the handle on this reel continue to loosen after time?  

Also...occasionally, when under load, the handle will "jump" forward a half a turn, then continue on as if nothing has happened.


Any ideas?

Alright...so tore into this reel.

First....there is excessive side to side play when pulling/pushing on the handle. The whole main gear/handle/shaft has what I would call excess lateral movement.   Where would I shim?  And what is the part # for the shim?

Second...in the pics below...is part #134B - Gear Spacer....facing the right way?  with the ridge towards the bearing?  or should it be reversed?

The reel was also missing part#134BB - Spacer as well as the 161A - lever click tongue.

Check your pinion. When the edges get worn where it engages the spool the spool will slip out of the pinion a half rotation and then re-engage.
Don't have a Penn pinion but here's a 400 Lexa and some Okuma pinions showing how bad the wear can be. The Centre in the Okuma pinions is supposed to be framed by two straight endges.

You know that moment when your steak is on the grill and you can already feel your mouth watering.
Do vegans feel the same when mowing the lawn?

Thanks Lunker....the pinion on this reel is attached to the shaft.  And look really good.    I'm going to try a shim here or there and see what happens.

Wish some of the Penn experts would chime in.

the 12 pins need to match up with the 12 holes.  there is likely not enough spring pressure holding them together.  make sure the gears are properly shimmed.  for one reel, i had to change out the gear shift key (key #128) and both shift springs, heavy and light (key #18H and 18L) to fix the problem.  i was dealing with a 70 international.  worked great afterwards!
