Odd that the G43 would be placed wrong?

Your code looks odd. Why is there a mix of T8, T9, H8 & H9 in the code????

Can you post the txt or tap file?

There are four machining operations; spot drill (T8), 19/64" drill (T9), 3/8" end mill roughing contour (T2), and a 3/8" end mill finishing contour ( T3). Here's the gcode file.

Okay that's better....

How odd that in the Drill 2 cycle the safe Z is after the M8, before the X Y move, and not after the G43.

I looked at the code for the other part I'm making which is a mirror image. Same tool, same setup just a mirror of the "problem" part. The code is correct. G43 is before the Safe Z move.
