I picked up a box of full accurate conversions at a price I couldn't pass by.  I've owned alot of the jiggy and squidder size as well as Magnums and a few 6/0s.  This has me stumped.  It's a purple 4/0 narrow with a cut out for some kind of plate on the right side.  It's not a Magnum!  I've never seen this before and wonder if it's a piece I need to track down or manufacture before I put it back together.  As you can see it doesn't go through the edge so no water intrusion issues.

It’s a little SS Plate to cover the opening when you get the gear in. Not a necessary piece.

Cheesy I talk with every part I send out and each reel I repair so that they perform at the top of their game. Cheesy

Yeah. Kinda odd that the plate seems to have an even circumference. The ones I've seen, have a kinda bulge where the ss gear cover screws in. I'd use somethin(plastic?) in there, to keep saltH2O oudda there. Pack with grease?...

 That cutout was intended for a piece of stainless, and I've had a few that did have the piece, and some without. I think accurate decided it wasn't needed, but if you see it with the plate installed, you'll see it does fill a gap to stop water intrusion. Without the plate in the cutout, water intrusion is very possible. I put some extra grease in there to help keep water out.
