Hmmm I'm using the stock 113 sideplate and everything fits. Are you using custom aluminum sideplates?

Everything stainless I could find and it all fits with no issues. Tiburon frame and original side plates.

Jkel- I installed the same bridge and SS yoke/jack into stock plates and it sounds like I had a similar issue. What I found is that the new bridge has very tight tolerances, whereas the stock plates are very loosey-goosey. Everything can seem to line up without a problem, but when you tighten it up, getting in and out of gear is a chore, as well as cranking. I found that the bridge has to be lined up just so, otherwise, these issues continue. Try making sure that that top edge lines up parallel to the corresponding ridge on the plate. On mine, it sat just below it, maybe 1/32" or so. If it was more than that or if it wasn't parallel, it would bind up. This is what the instructions were talking about when they said to tighten it up a little at a time.

Good luck and let us know how it goes!

There are many of these reels out there doing just fine. Check your assembly again.
Sanding down parts as you did wouldn't do anything to the reel, there is already enough clearance there. But if it makes you feel better, why not.
Try tightening the bridge screws a little at a time, this should be done as such on all reels and not just the 113H.

And if it still doesn't, we'll make sure it will. Smiley

Mike, Sal, I want to thank you for your advice and I'll give it a go this weekend and report back.  Grin

And yes Swami805 I will keep at it until I get it working right!

These reels have parts kits made from 3-4 different vendors, it is expected to do a little minor adjustment here and there.
I have no doubts you will get it, but just in case you don’t, you have nothing to worry about.

After making sure everything was properly positioned and tightened down correctly the handle was still hard to turn. Could not think of anything else and then it hit me....'swap out the SD Carbontex kit with Bryan's drag kit'.

Out with the SD kit and in with Bryan's kit. Wow I couldn't believe how much of a difference it made. The handle turned just as smoothly as stock! I did have to file the 'ears' down just a bit on those metal washers to get them to fit properly in the PC main gear. Other than that it's good to go!

Seems like the Smooth Drag Carbontex drag kit doesn't mesh well with the Pro Challenger main gear?? I was using that drag kit with the stock main gear and it worked just fine.

But anyway thanks again to all!  Grin

It sounds like your drag stack was to tall. Sometimes you have to adjust the stack height by using thinner or thicker metal washers. Or it could be incorrect parts above the stack. Maybe if you had just removed the delrin washer from under the main gear & replaced it with the original fiber washer it all might have been fine. When modifing these reels with custom parts a caliper is your friend.           Rudy

Well shoot! I'm glad you got it figured out. Now git out there and catch something on it! Grin

That's one tool I don't have and should look into.  Smiley

You're absolutely correct so now it's time to spool the reel with 60lb mono!  Grin
