Cortez Conversions 114H Side Plate Build

This tutorial is for New Style and Old Style side plates. This build will include an upgrade of the stock gear sleeve with our Cortez Conversions Stainless Steel Gear sleeve.
Also an upgrade to the drag stack, with Ultimate Upgrades 7+1 drag washer system. For the purpose of this build only 7 washers will be used. We recommend using the original 4-115 fiber washer under the main gear, solely because cleaning up shredded drag washer material is well... A drag. Sorry Bryan.
It is also recommended that you visit Mysticparts.com and download a schematic for the 114H (6/0) Special (Red) for reference.
