1) Remove the worn sole and the old rivets from
the foot lever
2) Rivet the soleplate (white) to the foot lever
as shown in the picture.
The ground side of the soleplate (no profile)
looks away from the foot lever.
Start with the pair of bottom rivets (left side
in the picture). Drill two diameter 4,1 mm holes through the soleplate
and the adjacent aluminium sheet at the foot lever and rivet the soleplate.
Be carefull to be beside the old holes (distance min.2mm). Bend the soleplate
further, drill the next pair of holes and rivet. Bend the soleplate complete,
drill and rivet the last pair.
The hardness of the soleplate is matched to the
rivets. With a correct riveted sole plate the heads of the rivets are counter
sunk and flush with the soleplate surface. No gab is between the aluminium
sheet of the foot lever and the soleplate. This is the condition for the
durable bond to the sole.
