The ratchet slipped again dropping the weight.
I see the pawls falling now. They even have a satisfying “click” as I turn the drum backwards. But, I see them not engaging the ratchet teeth as the drum turns under pressure. I see the pawl just resting on top of the tooth, not slipping in to engage.
My hope was, if this happened, that the pawl that was engaged with the ratchet-tooth that it would hold under the weight as the drum turned. But it appears that the pawl disengages as it reaches the button of the drum and gravity pulls it out.
I will watch it a little longer to make sure this is what is happening, but I think I might be able to fix it from falling out by adjusting the angle the pawl and the tooth meet at. If the tooth holds the pawl until the torque is release, that should solve my issue (I think).
The pawl currently meets the ratchet-tooth at a 90 degree angle. If that angle were less, the tooth should hold the pawl even as it goes around the drum and is pulled down by gravity.
