Thanks for this Christian
I have two problems I think!
One is the pin wheel
10mm pin OD as you say - picture attached
So I’d like to fix that
Could you kindly explain again your solution?
I’m not clear about the 2mm gap you mention and how this works.
I assume I can get a metal disc cut for a new wheel but I’m unsure how to reattach it to the pin whilst inside the Genoa car.
Many thanks for any further info you could provide !
The other problem is the actual car itself - the top metal section is wearing thin so I’d like to replace soon too but I will have to remove the car for this so I’m still trying to work out if I can avoid cutting a small end section of the T track ‘T’ profile off.
Others have mentioned that the stanchions can be moved but I still don’t quite see how as mine are through bolted with no means to move them to port/starboard direction. If others who have done this could advise I would be most grateful.
Many thanks in advance

Hi there Miles,
Had 2 alm alloy wheels shattered (genoa & jibsheet travellers) already, & given the difficul task of removing the travellers, had 2 wheels cut off at original wheel dimensions,
25 mm OD - 5 MM Thk - 10 mm dia center hole
then sliced one sector with 2 mm gap to allow the wheel to be inserted back in traveller, under spring.
Works fine until now (fitted since June 2018) & 4 spares ready to cover further failures.
