Centrifugal Brakes Problem #12804690

I have a couple old Revos and Bantam Curados with centrifugal braking systems and am having a bit of trouble with the settings staying in place. I usually like to have only 2 brakes engaged but after a couple long casts I start losing distance and can tell that more of the brakes have engaged. So after every 30ish minutes of casting I will end up having to take off the side plate and turn off the (usually 2 extra) random brakes that kicked on. Then of course my feel for the reel is all messed up so usually the first cast after readjusting leads to a huge bird nest.

Is there something I am doing wrong? I always turn on the brakes so that they are symmetrical even though I don't think that would cause this. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

do they click in place? if not they may be worn and need to be replaced.
