Question about Advanced Elements Advancedframe Convertible Inflatable Kayak

1 Answer

Torn bow After going over a 6 foot waterfall on class III rapids, I hit a rock on impact and the black rubber landing strip on the nose of the keel was torn about 11 inches when the weight of my body forced the aluminum rib through the hull. Can I get another black bow peice and repair it myself with glue?

Repair any cracks or damage to the hull with fiberglass repair kits, available at most hardware stores. Use an overlay prior to the fiberglass if the area is bigger than a quarter so you don't develop a soft spot.

Makita impact driver wobble

Many of my customers that use this tool heavily have the same problem. It's usually the Hammer Case (PN 154590-6). The nose if the case is the bushing that holds the anvil in place and sometimes wears out of round. Rarely the anvil (PN 324432-0) wears where it passes through the hammer case so check that also.

Needle hits bobbin case

The bobbin case has to be positioned properly in the race. When the stitch plate is removed the bobbin case can be inserted in the wrong orientation to the stop finger. So if I can the presser foot location 12 o'clock, the tension screw for the bobbin case should be at 6:15 and the stop, which I think looks like a little nose, should be at 5:45. This little nose like projection should nuzzle up against the stop. If the needle hits the bobbin case when the bobbin case is inserted correctly, go see a dealer, your machine is broken.

I have a very old Pungo. It recently slipped off the truck and drug for a short time on the pavement. It wore a small hole in the bow and took off about a 1 by 8 inch strip of bow covering. Would that be...

Plastic? Cheap and quick way would be to try to fill the hole -- small you said -- with good caulking and then stuff the inside of that end with a plug of something to support the seal. Duct tape on the outside to protect the seal.

Not sure what you mean about the bow covering.

Have 2002 dodge neon that gets water in the trunk where spare tire is housed, and large amount of water in both rear floor areas. What might be the problem and how much do you think it will cost to fix?

try opening the trunk and cleaning the water drain off out. there is a rubber strip that goes around the lip of the trunk that gets clogged with leaves and sticks and just trash.look at the rubber strip to see if clogged or torn. if it's torn you'll need to replace or repair it with some silicone sealent.around where that strip is, thats a drain for water to run off the car. try to clean and repair before you replace it but if you have to replace it, the rubber strip is not that expensive, maybe $30.00 for the rubber and it's easy to install.hope this helps!!

May seem to be unrelated but, I had a similar problem with my last truck and it wound up being ball joints. It sounds similar, (especially the rocking forward after stop), might be something to check. If you're talking about a 4WD, it could be your transfer case.

The keys won't strike. I tried everthing and nothing works. You hit a letter and it just moves as iff you are hitting the space bar.

The impact solenoid has a rubber pad or cap on the tip that hits the hammer and it has probably broken off...needs the impact solenoid repaired or replaced and then the impact adjusted.

Yamaha digital piano clp 170

This is a common problem with Yamaha keyboards. The problem is caused by worn-out rubber contacts in the keyboard assembly. In my old Clavinova CLP-500, there was one long rubber contact strip under the keys with two parallel strips of semiconductor material. The Clavinova circuitry determines key velocity by measuring the timing between when the key hits the first and second strips of semiconductor material. The harder you play a key, the less time it takes the key to hit the second semiconductor strip after hitting the first.
After years of playing the keyboard, the keys eventually cause tears in the semiconductor material and this messes up the timing measurement for key velocity. The only solution is to take the keyboard apart and replace the rubber contact strip with a new one.
I got rid of my CLP-500 four or five years ago and got a new CLP-170. The CLP-170 is now having exactly the same problem that the CLP-500 had. Yamaha has re-designed the rubber contacts in the CLP-170 so that there are now eight individual contact strips instead of one long one. The problem is essentially the same, though. You have to take the keyboard apart and replace the worn out rubber contacts.
Here are the part numbers for the rubber contacts that need to be replaced in the CLP-170: V8286600 Rubber Contact, 12 keys, D-C#   Qty. 6 V8286800 Rubber Contact, 11 keys, A-C#   Qty. 1 V8286700 Rubber Contact, 5 keys, D-C   Qty. 1
I suggest you also get a copy of the CLP-170 service manual, part number 001677. It has descriptions of all the steps necessary to take the thing apart and put it back together again. You'll also need a "rod" (which is just a long dowel), part number TX000670. Before you take the circuit boards off the keyboard assembly, you have to insert the dowel between the keys and the frame to keep the keys from falling back and getting in your way. A 5-foot long 1/4-inch dowel will probably work. (I haven't yet taken apart my CLP-170, and I don't have Yamaha's "rod," so I'm not sure if 1/4 inch is the right size or not. I'll report back here if it's not.)
Good luck, Howard
