Hi, Please don't groan and say Plastimo what do you expect. The thing is stiff. It is not halyard wrap and is looking like the drum bearings. I am looking for someone who has taken one to bits. I am an engineer and it it needs new bearings I can fit 'em even if it means adapting them from somewhere else or using stock bearings if I can't buy plastimo spares. I could just do with a heads up as to what to expect when I take out the four bolts that hold the drum together. It is one of the old black plastic ones. Don't say chuck it away as that is not an option at present. I have plenty of time but not much cash! Any advice gratefully received.
