Re: Stuck mainsail swivel

Greg,

 

I disassembled the genoa swivel I had as a spare part. There are two nylon rings in contact with the moving inner part
of aluminium. To my understanding these two rings cause the main friction while furling, not the ball bearing or the seal rings.
I have sent a word doc with drawings and fotos directely to you.

 

All the best
