Harken MKII service

It's time to clean and service my Harken MKII roller furler and I can't seem to find much on the internet on how to do this. I currently have my head sail at a sailmakers shop getting restitched and I would like to grease the roller furler with McLube. Do I:

1. Remove the bolts from the torque tube and slide it up.
2. Slide up the track and hold both up with vice gripes.
3. Spray McLube down Roller Furler.

How much McLube should I use.

The Harken has Torlon (plastic) bearings. All you really need to do is to rinse the bearings with fresh water. Though using a dry lube certainly won't hurt anything.
It's a good idea to lift the torque tube if only to facilitate the rinsing and to make sure the fasteners aren't becoming corroded. Use Lanacote on the screws when reassembling.
Don't forget to rinse the bearings in the swivel too.
