James, I realize there must be some sort of bearing at the top of the mast, I guess I should be asking if anyone has had a problem with it seizing up. I will take your suggestion and seperate the gearbox from the extrusion ,that will confirm where the problem is located.

I would try detaching/disengaging the mizzen furlers gearbox from the extrusion. This would allow you to determine where the binding is. I will leave the specifics of how to detach the extrusion to other SM owners since my boat is a Maramu and the process might be different. To your other question, yes there has to be a bearing at the top of the mast as well.
