Re: Blown main sheet traveler car- need advice ASAP

Harken traveler systems are some of the best in the business, and having all the load on the bearings is pretty standard. The bearings were likely worn and damaged already, and all it took was that final shock load to finish them off. While you COULD get a whole new car to fit your track, you may only need to get a new set of bearings, depending on the model you have.
