Hi guys, been checking my rigging lately(new to me boat)
I have a newer forestay with upper and lower norseman connection...upper is good just some light surface rust...
however my lower norseman which is a threaded stud has more threads exposed...
I have not taken it apart for fear of not being able to reinstall without a new cone which I cannot source quickly...
is it normal for 4-5 threads to be exposed on the male part of the fitting and is it possible to dissassemble check condition and rethread all the way in without damage
according to navtec norseman you can do this...I have loctite, lube and everything else but the cone needed.
sorry I do not have a pic...yet. I also have norsemans on my uppers and intermediate stays...they however are completely seated.
I have researched and stalok can have 2-3 threads showing and that is fine, however every where I search about norseman I cant find a definitive answer on wether threads showing is ok.
I think maybe its that the rigger or p.owner did not cut the wire correctly and left too long over the cone...not allowing the male thread to seat completely but enough to work so far.
thanks in advance
