Aloha Matt and All,

I am seeing wear and possible cracking on the AI's AKA brace cap, which takes a lot of stress. As a precaution, I would like to replace the aging plastic parts at both ends of my V1 AKA braces. There are no pictures or manuals describing this, so I need help with the parts and assembly info.

These are the parts I think I need for the rebuild.

For the hull connection:
79524001 CAP / AKA BRACE LOCK
79523001 SOCKET / AKA BRACE LOCK
81242001 SPRING / AKA BRACE LOCK
8030781 SOC CAP SCREW
79525001 BALL - AKA BRACE

For the AKA connection:
8032081 SHEAR BOLT
8052081 NUT
79536001 BRACE CONNECTOR
8020381 CLEVIS PIN
20860000 SPLIT RING

My questions:
1. Am I missing any parts?
2. Will they all fit my 2007 vintage braces?
3. What is the procedure for breaking down and assembling the spring-loaded cap end of the brace? I took the soccap screw out but nothing wanted to come loose from there. This spring cap is a critical piece. How is it held on?

And BTW, WTH are these?
79537001 CLIP, ISLAND AKA BRACE KIT (2) ??
79526201 ISLAND PADDLE / AKA BRACE KIT ??
