Roller furling use

I have a 1983 30''Cat hull 3358. It came standard with a roller furling. Can anyone tell me who the manufacturer would be? It''s a single continuous line.

The line pulled out of the furling and wouldn''t operate. We put it back in the channel and tightened the black stoppers. It worked for about 1/8 of the jib then stopped. Now the entire furling unit wants to move instead of rolling it out. I''m not sure if the problem is the unit or the operator

This is my first time with a furling so I''m not real sure how this is supposed to work and I''m not sure it''s working in either case. Can anyone provide some real basic knowledge on how to use the continuous line furling and what it should be doing.
