You would need 2 trigger end fittings, bridle lines, and a new track car with ring. Finding parts for an outdated receiver socket might be impossible.
Actually the current pole is symmetrical and so can be used end for end too.

I'll snap a photo tomorrow when I get out to the boat, which delightfully like, is now in the water!
