Re: Roller Furler Repair

if you replaced the forestay and know it is worse until you lossen the haylard and new sail then check that the upper swivel is not going to high and draging on something at the end of the travel. also the bearings are torlon balls and can be replaced if need be. try putting Mclube One Drop on the bearing balls. if it is an older one then it may have the old Delrin balls bearings and they should be replaced with torlon bearings. http://www.harken.com/pdf/4414.pdf near bottom of page is the bearing part numbers
