Thumbs down Whiz Bang Traveler

I have a "Whiz Bang Traveler" on my Newport and it is in desperate need of rebuilding the car bearings and wheels...any ideas on what can be substituted, or where to get parts?

Let's see...
Port wine is Red,
Green wine is Starboard?
Red on right returning...
Green on right when going...
Just have some wine.

There were both red, port was too short, so used an old halyard .

I would consider using a single, continuous line for your traveler. I've done that now on a couple boats and it reduces the amount of line in the cockpit.

Dave I actually tried that.. didn't care for it.
