My screw is slightly bent and has damaged threads where the v-brace was rubbing. There is no sign of any loctite on the threads either. When I had the x-bar replaced this was checked and seemed tight. Obviously it wasn't.
Looks like this may be something to watch.
The TI mast base is almost identical to the AI, just slightly larger. In fact it looks like the part # is the same for the socket screw. I imagine it would be difficult to replace it in the field.[/quote]
Hmm - something else to keep an eye on
Stringy how are your akas going? My AI knuckles have some loose play in them - which I only expect to get worse. My mate Gerry, has looseness and corrosion occurring around the rivet points after 3 months careful use. This is something I will be watching very carefully also.
The TI should arrive tomorrow......[/quote]
