Main furler and furler gear box

Mark McGovern


Lot's of good information on the main furler in this thread:

and in this Photo Album:

My furler was completely seized up so I just completely overhauled it.   My gearbox, however, appeared to be fine so I just re-greased it and re-installed it.

I dismantled the main furler today for maintenance of the furler, gear box and the elongated hole in the profile. are there any particular issues in service the gear box and the furler?
