Can anyone help me with this? The boat is an 04 22v riders edition, with a Syncrovac manufactured tower. The company is no longer in business. The tower seems to be pulling apart on the port side. <BR> <BR>Is there supposed to be a pin or something in this hole, or is it designed to give? <BR> <BR>The picture is of the port side front leg. <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/513930.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/513931.jpg" alt="Upload">

It does look like something might be missing there, Have you checked the other side?

I believe there is supposed to be a big allen bolt on the inside of that leg.

i know the new ones take a allen bolt to hold those 2 peices together. i would start with taking the other sides allen bolt out to match it up hahahaha.

No pin in the hole. That is just a weep hole for welding or drainage. <BR> <BR>Check what everyone else is saying about the allen bolt on the inside of the lower part.

The other side does not have anything in the hole either. <BR> <BR>I tried looking in the hole with a flashlight but I can see no hole on the inserted piece or any threads. <BR> <BR>Now the dang thing is in storage and will have to get dealt with in the spring. <BR> <BR>Thanks, I wish the Factory could have given me this much help. All I got out of them was the name of the company and the fact that they were out of business. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by enzostyle on October 25, 2007)

Typically there's a small allen nut on the inside just below that black ring. I believe that leg has a "male/female" part that fit into each other. I don't think it can actually come apart because the rear section of the tower is keeping pressure on it.
