    I’m not sure this design style is synonymous with all other types of makes, but I just don’t agree with it, I’ll say that much!

    Anyway I just did a repair that for a bit seemed completely impossible.

    For now it has seemed to work but I’m not sealing it until I’m sure.

    My problem is I really didn’t know if I was dealing with a nut or a bolt that is on the INSIDE of the shoulder pipe.

    I had to drill an access hole which luckily was right on top of the hex that needed to be tightened.

    Then as a Hail Mary I applied some Loctite retaining compound (thread locker on steroids) to what I believe now is a nut, then by binding the nut inside the pipe tightened it using the arm itself.

    Helped make dinner, and ate dinner.

    Then came back to it and it seemed to work.

    Fingers crossed!

    Pulling back TPE while drilling a hole in the skeleton is easier said than done.

    I made the incision in the underarm area.

    Here is a picture of the access hole:

    Small piece of PVC or abs tubing will be your friend in future to possibly help keep material out of the way. holding open the incision
