Facnor SD 290 Question

I have a 2007 Lagoon 440 with a Facnor SD290 Fuller for my jib and I have a couple of questions:
1. There is a rod type cir-clip laying at the bottom of it. I cannot figure out its purpose and do I need to be worried about getting replaced. I have attached a photo.
2. When trying to furl in the jib it is fairly difficult and I cannot do it by pulling the line without using the winch. On the Lagoon there is a fairly torcherous path the line travels to get to the clutch at the fly bridge. Will I overstress the furler or other items by using my winch or should I station someone at the jib to assist the rotation?
Thanks for any replies.

Re: Facnor SD 290 Question

It sounds too stiff to me. Check that the furler turns easily when you pull the furling line close to the furler - if it does then the problem is in the route the line takes back to your clutch. If it doesn't, then there must be a problem with the actual furler. Make sure that angle between the drum and the line is exactly 90 degrees from the first turning block. This ensures even pull on the drum, and even wrap of the line as it goes back.
No real clue about the pin, sorry!

Thanks for the response Captnandy. Looks like some simple troubleshooting is in my future. I didn’t know if the furling line routing was the main factor.
