Larry, there is a maximum file size of 1000 bytes for that attach option. I can't make a picture worth looking at that small, unless you know a way around the size limit?

I have the same problem - high quality digital camera - hard to shrink photo. You need photo editing software that will allow you to format for email, etc. Photoshop or the like. CSY guy was struggling with this same issue on another thread. The size restriction on this site is tough and was probably limited due to space consumed by photos. I believe the new owner intends to improve this issue. You can email me the photo and I will try it.

Photo

I guess a larger photo would have worked better, but thanks for the assistance, Larry.

In the photo, if you look really close, you can see the knee on the right, the chainplate (painted white and coming about half-way down the knee), and then the backing plate on the left.

The crack and brown stain is in the knee, at the bottom of the chainplate and where the white paint stops.

A little later in the year when I get the project going I'll start a series of photos on a website and maybe restart the thread then.

Rob

What I can see seems to make your guess correct. The glass is definitely split, maybe by load, but the freezing option seems very likely. The backer looks newer, not original, and the bolts down low were added. This is not structurally as strong as higher up, so it seems they were grabbing what they could to transfer some of the load. I have not rebuilt a knee, so others should define some of your options, but seem clear you will have to cut open, replace and reglass. Bummer

I do a lot of construction jobs redoing what some other guy did before. Many fix the damage, or symptom, but fail to properly identify the cause. You will want to figure out where the water comes from and make sure you solve that problem(s) before you close it up again.

Identifying the source

I agree with your comments about the source. The location seems to have remained dry throughout the fall, so I believe the bulk of the leaking has been stopped.

I won't feel confident until I address the previously mentioned toerail situation this spring.

More to come.
