Can this work with the newer Ultra Cast design reels?  I have one in the parts bin and test fit a newer 5600 C4 brake plate and it almost fits.  By almost, I mean all the pins line up except for the pin on the thumb bar itself.  Can I grind metal out of the brake plate to accommodate the thumb bar pin?  I'm getting Frankenreel ideas.

Yes you can, the thumbbar pin is a wee bit larger than the slot on the inside ring. You have to remember to push the thumbar in the up position when assembling the reel. Also you'll need to remove the engagement lever on the right side.
