How do you use a lever drag?

I just acquired a shimano tld lever drag
from a friend that I would like to use
party boat tuna fishing with. I'm unsure
how to set the drag and the best way
to fish with it.?? Any experience using
a lever drag reel??

thanks , I have a tld-20 & a pretty
sturdy Gloomis rod. I thinking of
putting on 60lb mono, the tackle
store suggested braided line, which
I like to fish with, but I'm thinking
on a party boat with all the tangles
braided line is going to get me in some
hot water. Is there any way to eyeball
the drag tension without having a
scale, what kind scale to you use?
