Re: Barient 17 Disassembly
I had an old pair of Barients long ago, and I couldn't figure out how to disassemble that part, so I set it in a container with a solvent overnight, then brushed it to get it clean, then lubricated it.
One of mine worked well, but one still growled, and I had difficulty finding parts, so I replaced them with a new pair of Lewmars that I found on sale at a good price. It hurt to spend that much, but it made the boat a pleasure to sail.
