If it is turning with difficulty, you likely have a rusted bearing, probably the top one.  I posted a series of photos on how to disassemble the manual furler.  Go to "Photos" and search for "Manual Furler Gearbox".  That should help you with the overhaul.  You will have to source new bearings and O-rings.
