Re: Rigid vang seized

I'm sure it would work just fine if we put it on my boat.

We have three rules;
No screaming.
No bleeding on the sails.
No slobbering on the charts.

Re: Rigid vang seized

BTW, does anyone know what maintenance is recommended for the Garhauer, to keep it working nicely?

Re: Rigid vang seized

We could try it, and if it works, then it can go back on mine

Re: Rigid vang seized

Well, fixed it. Just goes to show there is nothing that can't be sorted with a 4lb club hammer, a pipe wrench and a piece of 2x4. Now have a working rigid vang again

Did you ever figure out what kind of vang it was? I just got a can of Kroil and that stuff really does a good job on rust.

Re: Rigid vang seized

Nope, couldn't find any maker information on there. Anyway, what I suspect had happened is the vang had been left under load for a looong period of time. The piston is a hard rubber and I think it had compressed and expanded sideways causing it to jam. I eventually got the end cap out, got the piston out and sanded it down a bit, cleaned it all up, regreased and reassembled. There was not a hint of corrosion anywhere.
