There has been a post about this very issue before.

Mach4 only requires G83 on the first line of the canned cycle and it probably requires a Q since that is the peck depth variable.

No worries,
It should have popped up with the G83 search, but didn't.  I kind of knew what I was looking for though and was able to find it pretty quickly.
Glad you got it figured out!
