    Default N5A Refurb Help

    I have a 1990 New Yorker. I'm looking at putting a new liner in it and a ratchet because it is a little loose. THis helmet does have an impact cap but never had the ratchet. Does anyone know how to install one or have a exploded diagram of one?

    You could probably find it if you searched. But you have to pry up the brass ring around the liner to remove the old one. Be careful doing it. At least don't be ruff. Place the new one in the same place and hammer the brass ring down with a rubber mallet or something soft as to not damge the brass. Make sure it is adjusted right and in the right place before you hammer it down. Not to hard to do. hope this helps. Chris
